I'm posting this on behalf of someone else who is having computer trouble.
They are on a laptop PC, using microsoft word to write a report. On dec 19th the file looked fine. Since then, this person has edited and resaved the document multiple times. Earlier today they opened up the laptop and the file looked fine. the computer asked them if they wanted to save the current file and they clicked "yes". then the computer shut down. Why it shut down they don't know. Anyway, when they rebooted the computer, their reported looked like it had back on the 19th and all the changes made since then were gone. the settings on ms word do autosave every 10 minutes and the person also saves the file regularly. They are certain the file looked fine before the computer shut down. Is there anyway to recover the changes that they made? Does the computer have any kind of hidden auto-save file or whatever? Or are they going to have to start over?
