[Tex/LaTex] Pdf File thesteriously deleted!

compiling

While compiling my LaTeX document on TeXmaker, I kept on getting an error message. I realized that this was a result of the fact that I had the pdf file open simultaneously. However, when I closed the pdf file, and try to re-compile the document, I received a very strange error message that says
! File ended while scanning use of \@footnotetext.
In fact, the pdf file does not exist anymore, and it is not in the recycle bin either. Why can it not produce a new pdf file? Thanks!

You have an error in a footnote so no pdf got made, most likely a missing } .
