Oops! Don’t you hate it when you accidently select Don’t Save when you really needed to save the file?! In previous Office versions that meant your file was gone for good. Office 2010 now brings your files back to life with a command called Recover Unsaved Documents.
How does Office 2010 perform such a miracle? It’s programmed to automatically save temporary files in a special folder called UnsavedFiles. So how do you retrieve an unsaved file? After closing a Word file unwittingly, open up a new MS Word document again. Go to File – Info – Manage Versions. Click on the little dropdown and select Recover Unsaved Documents. In Excel 2010 click on Recover Unsaved Workbooks or Recover Unsaved Presentations if you are in PowerPoint 2010.
You’ll never lose a file again – it’s a miracle!
