computer shut down before I save a document

By mstors ·
I was working on a detailed document and had several windows open when my husband needed to use the computer. He shut it down before I had a chance to save it. I guess I don't have auto recovery on because I can't find it.

Difficult to comment without more information ...

What word processing program(s) were you using? What make/model of computer?

If by "auto recovery" you mean 'automated save every few minutes' then I'm afraid you are probably correct and your document has floated off into the ether.

Usually a Telephone Directory comes readily to hand and is a suitable weapon for beating husbands around the head with - I know it hurts too!

After doing an exhaustive search, it was nowhere to be found. The auto recovery was not on and I don't think there's any way it could be found. Thanks for your reply
