Perhaps you could give us more detail as to what you did when you first
closed your notebook. Did you simply just Save with some filename? Does the
problem occur with every notebook you try to save and open again? Can you
just try a simple experiment like writing a single line in a new notebook,
saving it, closing and open back?
