Recovering Deleted Word Document

  livewire 17:49 19 Jul 2004

My Friend has accidently deleted all of the contents in his word document and then saved it. Is it possible for him to recover this file? Perhaps a copy may be stored in a tempoary location?

This document is very important to my friend- I would be very thankfull and so would he be if any one has any ideas.

Word has AutoRecover which makes automatic backups of files you are working on - every time you save a document, the old version is saved as well.

If your document is MyFileName.doc, the backup will be MyFileName.bak.

Thanks- Do you know if AutoRecover files are stored in a seperate folder- or the folder which the Document is stored in?

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the File Locations tab.

You will then see a list one of which is autorecover - it will state where the files are saved to
