I was working on a word document... just opened a new one and started writing. In the midst of my typing the entire thing closed and was gone. I had another document opened (it was saved) but the other one just left the screen. I was not prompted to save or anything... how can i recover this document? any tricks.

i really need it back!

If the document had a name then try Tune Up Trial, run file recovery, undelete, show only files in good condition, choose a restore to location

Tune Up Trial

Your document may be on your system as a temporary file in which case it will not bear its original name. Its size (or some other property, such as time of creation, will notify you to it). You may well have to associate it. You do this by clicking on File>Associate>Browse and then selecting the program that made it. You are now in the position to open it and verify whether it is your document.
