I have the weirdest problem. I access my novel files from my zip drive plugged into a USB port on the side of my laptop. Thankfully, I keep two online back ups. I say thankfully because the last 3 mornings in a row, I have opened my almost 500 page file to find only 13 pages! After freaking out the first day, I found out all it takes to fix it is to go to one of my online back ups, download and save that copy over the existing file, then all the pages are there. It makes me think the zip drive is dying, but I also keep the main copy of my son's homeschool tracker info on the zip drive and I've had no problems with it. Any thoughts?

I hate Word; I use Abiword. And it's not based on the count it gives me... I scrolled all the way to the bottom of the file and there were only 13 pages.
