    I need to retrieve lost document on "Address book"
    I clicked on the "address book" icon on my mac book pro and typed the text of an important document in one of the "notes" I created.

    Normally everything I typed on a note automatically saved itself without me ever having to hit a "save" button.

    The text I created a while ago was several pages long and it contained very important data.

    As I was working on other documents my mouse "froze" so I then "forced quit" and restarted my computer. After doing that I found the document I had created on the "Address book" was gone. Completely gone as if it had never existed.

    My understanding is that a safety copy may be stored "somewhere" on my computer's hard drive. I'd appreciate it if I could get some help locating it as there is information in it of great value.
