How to recover unsaved data?

Postby Bantha Fodder » Mon Nov 27, 2017 11:11 am

We conducted a psychology experiment last week and directly input all our data into spss. I forgot to save my data and I'm hoping somebody can help me recover it. I'm really desperate since this is a course requirement and I messed up big time.
how everything went out: I made an SPSS file calculating for a t-test for independent samples with sample data (dummy data) to test if what I did was correct then saved it. after our experiment, I opened the same file but changed the dummy data into the real data we got from our experiment. however, today, I remembered that I wasn't able to save our real data and now I'm looking for ways on how to recover it. I'll appreciate any help that can be given to me. thank you!

There is no "auto save/recovery," sorry so remember next time
