I spent a few hours drafting a document for a post and my internet connection froze (a problem I have been having) so I copied the post text and forgot save it before restarting my computer.

Is there a way to retrieve it after restart? Does the clipboard get completely erased after restart?

Chosen solution

The contents of the clipboard are erased when you restart the computer.

Firefox may even clear the clipboard if you close the Firefox program.
