I had a normal *nb file in Math11 with graphics, calculations, text....but by some uncontrolled click it was broken and now it may be opened only as a simple plain text file with crazy "Mathematica" cells, boxes and so on... Is there any way to recover the file in normal form? How to organize the auto-backup:which would allows to save a backup version of the ".nb file let say each 30min?

To recover the .nb can be done quit easily in this case. How I did it

1. Opened the Basics of Polazation analysis2.txt in a text editor. UltraEdit in my case.

2. Marked the whole lot. Copy, Ctrl-C.

3. Opened MMA 11. New notebook. Paste, Ctrl-V

4. This dialog appears:

5. Naturally, clicked Yes

The result is attached
