Do you remember the name of the original docx?

The auto recovery files are at C:\\Users\YOU\AppData\Roaming/Microsoft/Word

Also if you close word and then reopn word, it usually will show the recent documents. Now if you hit save instead of save as then the most recent document would be the information that you saved.

My Expert answered my question promptly and he resolved the issue totally. This is a great service. I am so glad I found it I will definitely use the service again if needed.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
