Today, I tried to open the research paper I've been working on for the past month, only to discover that the entire file is permanently lost and can't be recovered. This is not the first time this has happened to this paper. FML

Jimmie is right- any important file like this should have at least one backup, possibly two. ESPECIALLY since this has happened to you before! YDI for being unprepared.

Take this as a life lesson. Fool me once, shame on you, etc.

I've had sumthing like that happen once. then I learned from it! so sorry, but that's a ydi for not having it saved in more than one place an learning your lesson.

if its windows, sometimes if you open a program in admin and save a file you have to run the program as admin again to see the file. maybe this is the case?

take it to the geek squad at best buy. they will recover this file along with all the porn on your pc. you better not have anything illegal on your pc or they will call the cops.

@iicaptain: it couldnt be recovered by someone who doesnt learn to make backups after already losing a months work, however the geek squad would be able to in most cases.
@OP YDI, learn in future

Too bad you added the 'this is not the first time this has happened to this paper', it probably makes it worse for you, but I have to say YDI. The first time should have taught you something.
