"Sir, All my work's vanished!"
After one of the pupils came to see me because all they had of their work was a blank document and not the letter of appoligy they claimed they had written I go to thinking...
If you assume that pupils are not lying or massivley techno-incompitent (crazy I know but go with me here) and that they have not:
- just not saved the document
- not typed anything,
- not saved a blank document over the top with the same name
- not let given their password to 12 of their frinds one of whom has deleted the important document they had to hand in...
Is there a way in which the could suddenly find that the document was blank when previously it had lots of text in it? (other than those listed above)
I am obviously strongly inclined to say "no" but as I am not all-knowing (last time I checked) I thought I might ask.
