I was writing with Scrivener and had 21,000 of my manuscript complete and suddenly as I went back to look at the chapters the words were decreasing. Each time I tried to look at my other chapters everything disappeared. I looked at the backup files and the files that I saved on my USB and nothing saved. I still didn't have my manuscript. How can I retrieve the words that I were deleted? I didn't press anything or do anything to delete them. It went from 21,000 to 1,000 in a split second and nothing saved.
