Customer Question

Is there any way to recover a never saved file that my boyfriend accidentally closed and clicked "don't save" from Microsoft word.

Unfortunately, once you tell the program you don't need it, it is gone forever. There is only one slim-to-none chance you can get it back if you have Auto Save turned on and the program is force quit.

Auto Save- saves the document in the event the program quits unexpectly. When the program is launched again, it should attempt to load the file that was not closed properly.

I kind of don't think this will work though, because it had already been told to close without saving.
