Can I Recover an Unsaved Word Document?

by | Aug 6, 2018

We’ve all done it. You get so involved in your work that you forget to save the word document you are working on and then something catastrophic happens. Either Word crashes or you lose power and all is lost. Or is it?

We have a recommendation for you that will help save you from this dreaded scenario. Turn on Auto Save in your office programs. If your computer shutdown or crashed, here’s a quick set of steps you can take to recover your work.

To Access AutoRecover files follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to Microsoft Word.
  2. Go to Filestab.
  3. Select Recent.
  4. From the menu, choose Recover Unsaved Documents.
  5. Browse for the file in the list.
  6. Click on it and restore it.

Of course, we can’t recommend enough that you have a backup solution in place. As we mentioned in a previous article, backing up your data is essential, particularly if you are a business. Of course, photos of the kids are very important too!
