Having questioned my ex-daughter who seems to think it is my fault that she lost her work, I realize that she is not sure what she has done. Looks like she turned the pc off without saving. No way back?
The only possibility is to re-open the document. If there is any recovery information, Word should display "(name of document) - RECOVERED" in the blue title bar. You could also search for fragments called $(name of document)
Otherwise, it is lost.
