    Hi all. I use a Galaxy A20e. I've lost a large chunk text from a very long Samsung Notes memo, following an auto update to the app. The first time I tried to open the memo after the update Notes asked if I wanted to convert the memo to run in the new version. I said yes, but immediately found a lot of text had been lost from this important memo - probably a third to half from the latter end of it. Very frustrating! I'd like to know if there's a way of retrieving the previously saved version of this memo please - i.e. with all the text intact, in the phone's cache, or as a temporary file, or even within the app?? Unfortunately, I hadn't backed up the files in my phone's document folder, or in the Samsung Cloud. Thanks very much.
