   I'm sorry  but I do not understand what I should do. From the first answer, 
I understood it would be safer to have first a copy of my #MyFile.tx#. Done. 
And then? If I try Alt-X recover file emacs seems to wait for the name of the 
file to be recovered. If I answer #MyFile.tex# or Copy_MyFile.tex emacs says 
"No" ( an auto-save file or ... not current).
Merci for your help.
