Recovering Unsaved Word Documents
We rely heavily on autosaves, yet huge chunks of progress and entire versions of documents can be lost when we don’t manually save our work. The good news is, this problem is so common that Microsoft has made it easy to recover unsaved Word documents:
1. In MS Word, click the File Tab in the upper left.
2. Click Manage Document and select Recover Unsaved Documents from the drop-down list.
3. Check for your missing file in the dialog box. If it was a recent loss it should appear.
4. Open the recovered Word document and click the Save As button in the top banner.
