    When I reopened Keynote the version of the file was very old (I'm sure actually prior to an interim save but perhaps I'm just wishful)

    Am I a goner or is there a way to try and get at least some of the 15 or so new slides I created all day :mad:

    Inside your mac are RAM and a hard drive.

    When you run keynote (or any program) everything that you do is stored on the RAM until you click 'save', at which point it is transferred to the hard drive for permanent storage.

    When a program crashes, and you force quit (or it quits), everything related to that program on the RAM disappears forever. So only the things that you saved onto the hard drive can ever be recovered.

    There simply is no way to recover the data as it doesn't exist anymore.

    I'm sorry this isn't what you were hoping for :eek:

    Peace and God Bless!
