Recover An Unsaved Document When Word Crashes

Recover An Unsaved Document When Word Crashes

How to turn on AutoRecovery:

Select ToolsOptions, Check ‘Save AutoRecover info every:‘ and provide the interval.
Then click on the File Locations tab, Select AutoRecover Files, Click on “Modify…” & provide a location for its to save the files.
How does it work:
When AutoRecover is turned on, the changes you make are saved at set intervals in a separate, temporary recovery file. Then, if you have to restart Word or your computer without saving your work, Word automatically opens the recovery file. In some cases it doesn’t. In such situations you have to try out the above solution. The recovery file contains your changes up until the last time AutoRecover saved the document. For example, if you set AutoRecover to save every 7 minutes, you don’t lose more than 7 minutes of work. All documents that were open at the time of the power failure or similar problem appear for you. Only changes you made after the last AutoRecover save are lost.
