    Hi,
    I'd been working on a MS Word document for 2 hours when Word crashed. When I restarted Word, all of my changes were GONE.
    Can anyone tell me how to recover my temporary document? I tried to look at my Windows/Temp folder but I'm on my work computer.

    File | Options | Save tells you if Word saves autorecover info. How often and where.

    Hello,
    You can recover your word file by following simple steps.
    Open the Office 2010 applications that you were using.
    Click on File tab -> Recent.
    Click Recover Unsaved Documents if you are in Word 2010, Recover Unsaved Workbooks if you are in Excel 2010 or Recover Unsaved Presentations if you are in PowerPoint 2010.

    Your saved drafts folder will open in a new window. Select the file and then click Open.
    In the business bar at the top of the file, click Save As to save your file to your computer.
    See if the following article would help also:
