Word- How do i recover a lost document??

Was working on a document, a power shortage took it.

And now comes the sad part..

I opened word again, it offered me to get the repaired file, and some way by mistake, i closed it...

Now , i want it to give me the option to access my repaired file again, is it possible to reach it?

thanks in advance

    Possibly you can find it in one of the "temp" directories. It would be a .doc file with a wierd name, usually letters and numbers, and maybe a "~".

    Otherwise, no; as this option is a 1 time shot. USUALLY if you say no or don't open it, it "goes away".

    (I have gotten lucky a couple of times, but usually just "oops" and do over.)
