    maybe you have a chance if you use a text editor who has autosave, maybe you have the document saved..... or something :-?? if you use Microsoft Word, and if you worked more than 10 minutes at that document, I think that it is saved... somewhere there.... just search for it. maybe in your temporary files.......

    It will all depend on the Microsoft Word program. Most of the newer versions will auto save and un-completed document. On the other hand, some of the original editions completely erase it. The way to find out if it will "auto save" or not is to do a test by making a document that you have no use for and shut down your computer. Then, when you turn on your computer again, see if the document opens.

    There is a setting in word that automatically saves your document on a time basis.

    On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Save tab.

    Select the Save AutoRecover info every check box.

    In the minutes box, specify how often you want your Microsoft Office program to save files.

    If you lose power or what ever, you can load the saved document. You have to turn that function on so it will work. It it is turned on, then

    For each file you want to keep, point to the file in the Document Recovery task pane, click the arrow next to the file's name, and then do one of the following:

    To work with the file, click Open.

    To save the file, click Save As, and then enter a name for the file. By default, the file is saved in the same folder as the original file. If you use the same name as the original file, the original is overwritten. When you see a message asking whether you want to replace the existing file (with the changes you made up to the last time you saved the file), click Yes.

    When you have opened or saved all of the files you want to keep, click Close in the Document Recovery task pane.

    It may have been saved in a hidden .tmp file that Word generates, but you would have to search for it.
