Everyone who uses a computer must have used Microsoft Word. The many features available on this application will certainly help you in making documents for work, school and other tasks. But sometimes we like to forget to save the file that is done. After the doc file is gone, we will panic and look for various ways to recover the .doc format word file that was not saved, corrupt, crashed, or blue screen earlier.
This becomes a nightmare if the lost documents are very important. Especially if the file requires a very long time to repeat it again. Therefore, here we will discuss ways that you can restore Microsoft Word documents that have not been saved quickly. With notes, this system only works on Microsoft Office 2016 series and above. Also you must be on the latest Windows 10 operating system.
Finding Documents from an AutoRecover (.ASD) File
Open the Microsoft Word application Click File then tap Info
Select Manage Document, then click Recover Unsaved Documents
A pop-up page will appear, after that find the file that you want to restore, then click Open
The last .ASD file that you have not previously saved will reappear in the Microsoft Word Application How To Recover Word Files From AutoRecovery
Open the Microsoft Word application Click File, after that you have two options, Recover Unsaved Document or select Options
If you choose the Recover Unsaved Document option, a pop up screen will appear, just like the first method
If you click Options, a different pop-up screen will appear Then select Save, then copy the location of the file in the AutoRecover file location column
Paste the location of the file in Windows search, then open the File Explorer folder
Then select the document that you want to return
If the file is not found, it's most likely that your file has been permanently deleted. You can use third-party applications such as Auslogics File Recovery or with EaseUS Data Recovery to restore it. But that way also will not guarantee 100% of the files will be returned. In fact, sometimes, it will only waste your time. It's better to focus and start working on the previously unsaved project again from the start.
AutoSave Settings For Prevention
Open the Microsoft Word File menu Select Options
After the pop-up screen appears, click Save, then select the desired Autosave time frequency
