# Recover the text from a notepad dump file

I was typing in notepad I then clicked save and it hanged so I went to task manager and clicked on the hanged process of notepad.exe "Create Dump File". I never got to save my .txt file ony the .dmp file. My dump file says notepad.dmp and is 104MB. Is there anyway I can recover my text from the dump file?

Yes, there is. The dump created a copy of the program's memory, so all you need to do is get a hex editor like the excellent HxD. Open your .dmp file, which is located in %TEMP%\notepad.dmp in this case.
If the null between each character is annoying you, try Find + Replace to remove as much of it as you can..
