Hello! My name isXXXXX will work diligently to provide accurate advice and information.
Chances are if the document has never been saved then you may have trouble finding it but, follow the below instructions and see if you can locate a temporary cache of teh document;
1) First, if you've restarted since losing the file, look in your trash for a "Recovered items" folder. if not...
2) Microsoft Office has an Autorecovery function that saves some files when, for example, there's a power loss. These files are located in the home folder, in the Library
Click "Go" in the Finder menu bar at the top of the screen, (If you don't see Library, press Option and click Go again as the Library may be invisible).
In Library, open a folder called Application Support.
In that folder are a number of folders, one of which may be Office 2011 AutoRecovery if files are available. Click that, and any files saved by the autorecovery function will be displayed.
3) If the above doesn't work, next, Go to the Finder
select Go in the menu bar and click "Go to Folder..."
and click the Go button.
Look for files or folders named "Word Work File" inside a "Temporary items" folder.
You should option-drag files or folders to the Desktop (or anywhere else) before dropping them on Word's icon. Don't delete anything!
If your file is still cached on the drive somewhere then that is the most likely place, however the cache files do not exist for long.
Recovery of unsaved files is slim so if the above does not turn up a copy of your file, then pelase don't shoot the messenger. :-)If you still have concerns, simply reply back before rating. I'll be more than happy to work with you further
