Microsoft Word Recovery

In a desperate attempt to impress the world Nim Chimsky has written an article on how to recover files in MS Word. Probably not your smartest move Nim.

Ever been putting the finishing touches on your next best-selling novel; making the final changes on your Doctoral Dissertation; or just typing your lover’s name over and over and over and over to see if it really is meant to be (P.S. if you really do weird shit like this please stop reading and never visit this site again).

THEN all of a sudden something terrible happens…...

You close the programme and accidentally push “No” when Mr PC asks if you want to save your changes.

Well, here is some info that might help.

PLEASE NOTE: This article only deals with the older versions of Word. We will update the article as soon as our pending law suite with Microsoft is over (apparently we are so popular that by calling Word 2007 crap in a small article on our “highly influential” blog we “personally insulted the integrity of the company, not to mention hurt their feelings and compromised their dignity” (quote from a source who wishes to remain anonymous: not surprising, if I was as sensitive as that prick I’d also want to keep it a secret). Aah, if only their customer-service responded as quickly as their lawyers (they pounced on us before we could even say "jiminy willikers").

Anyway:

If you accidentally click “No” when asked if you would like to save your changes in Microsoft Word:

Go to Tools>Options>File Locations>AutoRecover Files...( look under the “File Types” column for “Auto Recover Files” and double click on it, under “Folder Name” scroll to the very left hand side to get the folder name) that should tell you where Word saves autobackups –

THEN GO TO THE FOLDER LISTED AND SEE IF THERE ARE ANY FILES DATED, for example, 12 DECEMBER 2007 (THE DATE YOU FORGOT TO SAVE YOUR WORK).

Also to make sure your future work is saved automatically: Go to Tools>Options>Save and tick “Save AutoRecover info every:” and specify a time (about 5 minutes should do the trick).

Hope that helps.
