Sounds like your computer failed somehow, either battery loss or overheated. Sometimes by virus attack.
If you or someone you know who has some PC technical ability you can use the windows file explorer (Not IE) and do a search in the web page cache on your system for a long phrase that you typed into your lost content.
Once you find the files of your missing content, you can cut and paste the content back into the web page that you were using previously.
Sorry you had a problem! I always write in Word and always save after every five minutes - that way I only lose a maximum of 5 minutes work! It's a good habit to get into - you can set most word processors to save a file periodically automatically.
If you were using Word often it will cache the file anyway so if you have a power outage etc - the next time you load Word it will have a fairly recent copy - and will ask you if you want to recover it...
If you wrote it straight on hubpages you should be able to go to your text box and recover it by clicking on the word draft at the bottom of your text box. It will bring up another box saying recover draft from however many minutes you lost it, okay?
I had the same problem numerous times using IE. I have taken the advice of other Hubbers and work in word first. I couldnt retrieve my work and was so frustrated, but lesson was learned fast!

How much time do you normally require to write a hub on the average? I am asking this because I can easily write a hub within 30-40 minutes time and sometimes a hub will take a couple of hours or so. BUT food hubs are taking a lot longer to complete, maybe because I haven't written much articles on...

One of my comments was not approved by the author of the hub and so desappeared. Is this comment permanently deleted or can it be recovered? I worked several hours on this comment and it the best I have written until now. I have not made a copy and so it seems to be lost. Is there any way to...

Hey Hubberville,It's been awhile since I have done a INSTANT Hub Challenge.What is a Instant Hub Challenge? Well, it's creating a hub, by consciously writing it within a specific time frame. You instantly create a hub, on a 30 minute timer.After which, I'll read and comment on. You get a brand new...
