Microsoft Office - Recover an unsaved file

December 2016


I was working on a Word document and suddenly my PC turned off (power shortage). I didn't have the time to save the document and upon opening Word again, it is not giving me any option to get my work back.
Are there any other solutions?


Look for a corresponding document in:
  • Documents and settings/User/Application data/Microsoft/Word

By default Word make a backup of your document after each 10 minutes.
