    Your almost done typing on your hub and suddenly the computer turns off what will you do?

    So frustrating that you forgot to save it in computer.

    I would freak out and feel very disappointed! To prevent this, I usually copy and paste sections of my article into Microsoft Word and save it just in case it goes wrong. If I forgot and my computer turned off, I would be very upset!

      Yes I freak out as I realized I havn't save as I turned it on .. so bad:(  I have poured out my emotions of writing it.  So devastating. I take a break making it now.

    I would scream. However, I think what you've written in your hub is auto-saved. Something similar happened to me before where I inadvertently came out of the site and was surprised that info was still there. But, as susi10 said, my hubs are always written in Word first, then I re-write it in the hub capsules. I don't copy and paste because I always change it as I write.

      Hello, janshares Thats what I thought that it will be autosave but when I turned on the computer only one word save too bad. It's my fault I forgot to ctrl save it, as I was so serious of writing whats on my mind.

    I can't tell you how many times I have lost work, either for school or for hubpages.... if you have a gmail account, I would suggest you use google drive. It saves your work all the time so you don't have to. It has really helped because I know how frustrating it can be to lose the stuff you have just written.

      Honestly using google docs is the best, It saves constantly. After having this happen to me so many times, I don't really use microsoft word anymore (although you can change your word settings so that it saves every few minutes)

    I lost a 10,000 word term paper that was due the next day, when the power went out. Luckily I had it written on paper and just had to retype it. I lost sleep over it and learned a lesson. I set the Word program to auto-save and then save manually on every other paragraph. I do the same thing on HubPages. I won't lose much, if anything.

      Wasn't a hub, it was a term paper. If I lose a hub, I would be upset. It was the final paper for a year long writing course and the research on it took the whole class. The term paper was half my grade for the year. It was more important than a hub.

    If you are writing an involved paper, you should hit the save button often. If you pause to think, hit save. At the end of the page hit save. If you are going through it to make editing changes, hit save. Google Drive is good. Nothing, beats the save button. Also, if you are really diligent, you can save it to your computer and save it to a disk or flash drive, e-mail it to your self. You just have to take the time to do it. In my old job, I wrote several reports that were between 10 and 30 pages long. Trust me, I started saving after typing the first page. At the end of the day, a copy was saved to a disk or flash drive that left the office with me.

    I actually have a program called open office, which has a special document recovery feature. if something happens while I'm working on a peice, Open office can recover it for me.

      No problem. if it helps any further, Open office behaves, for the most part, like normal MS word, so it's not much of a shift, either.
