Recovering Unsaved Documents in Microsoft Office
I got a set of worried messages from a customer of mine recently who had fired up Microsoft Word and proceeded to create a document without saving it. After spending hours on it they then shut down their PC and accidentally clicked on the option to to not save the document. Was there a way to get it back?
After a little bit of digging I found the answer. There are two ways to resolve this:
1. Quicker, slightly more techie method:
- Open a Windows Explorer window and browse to the following location:
- There should be a file or files with the ASD extension. One of these will hopefully be the file you are missing.
- Double-click to check and see - the files should open up with Word.
