Any way to cover text typed into a Text file, saved/named, then totally corrupted when re-opened?

Hours of essential notes typed into 2 Text app files lost. Oddly, different results on re-opening, even. I had saved both files with names, not as a PNG file. Is there any way to recover?

ALSO, is there anything like the Notes app in Windows for Chrome — not Keep, either. I'm new to Chromebooks and quite frustrated, but I couldn't afford another Windows laptop at today's prices. Feel like I'm back in the late '80s in functionality, though, except for familiarity with the Chrome browser.
