My operating system is Windows Vista. I was typing a Word document. I edited it and came back to it a few times, so I am almost postitive I saved it. This afternoon I wanted to send it in an email but could not access it. I looked at the recent documents on Word and it is not showing up. I don't have back-up for Word. SO....is there any way I can retrieve it? Thanks!!

Have you done a search on your system for that file? Also, do you have Word set to save docs every few minutes? If not, you should.

Which Word version you are using i.e Word 2003 or Word 2007?

The details which i am providing is for Word 2007

Click Office Button (extremely top left)--> Word Options--> Save.

Check AutoRecover File Location and Default file location and browse your file in it.

Or Last option check in Server drafts locaton.

I hope you will get your file and let me know the result.

or we can try some other alternative way.
