I need some help here!!! Can anyone tell me if I am able to revert back to a previous version of a Word document I have saved. Changes were made and the document saved, there was an error during the save and most of the document is missing. Is there anyway I can locate this document file in the version before changes were saved and error occured????

No!! how would i do that? I can only access the one file and it's the one with the error. I need to try and open it in it's previous state but I fear the last save erased the date to create this new file????

Unless you got lucky and there is a backup somewhere, you are plain out of luck..

The second you "saved" the corrupt file, it overwrote the original.. There is NO original to go back to anymore!!
