Recently one of my friend told me that he lost an important report which is written in word and asked me any way to recover it and i am help less at that moment because i don’t know any procedure to recover them,But now if he asks me i can surely help..And here is the procedure to recover unsaved word files
Move to the word option[Microsoft Word 2007] from the word menu and shift to Advanced tab.
Find the “Save” submenu by scrolling down and Look for “Always Create Back-up copy” and then “Allow background Saves”. This will help you re-store all your files instantly. The back-up files of word are saved as:- .wbk extension.
So, don’t get tensed if you lose your files by mistake, they can always be restores through the back-up copy.
Obtaining Deleted Files in Windows XP:
You have two very easy ways of obtaining the word file from this method. You either check on your user application data or search the temporary folder.
* C:\Documents and Settings\Local Data\ Microsoft\Word.
* C:\Documents and Settings\Local Settings\ Temp.
These given addresses can be opened in the Windows Explorer. If your operating system is installed in other drive other than C drive, then you will have to change the extension of the above address. Further, in place f the user name, use your OS name and you can fine many of your unsaved temporary files. In case of power failure or you system itself crashes, open your Microsoft Word once again, it will restore the data immediately.
Obtaining Deleted Files in Windows 7:
You’ll find an ASD file there, you could open it in Microsoft Word and it will show you the document that you closed without saving. Some data may get missing from the document but it is better to have it rather than not being able to recover at all.
If you cant find the files in those above methods lets start searching in the temp folders of your computers and if you fails still i think your files are lost forever.
