Some other tips that you may use to restore lost office file.

Search for the Original Document.
1. In Windows, click Start, Search, and then For Files or Folders.
2. In the Search for files or folders named box, type the file name.
3. In the Look in box, click "My Computer". (This searches your entire computer - if you know that the file is in a specific area, for example, "My Documents", then change this accordingly.)
4. Click "Search Now". If the Search Results box does not show the file, continue with the following steps to search for all Word Documents.
5. In the Search for files or folders named box, type *.doc. Tip: In computer terminology, the asterisk * is used to select all options. By entering *.doc you're telling the computer to search for all files with the .doc extension.
6. Click "Search Now".
If you still cannot find the file, open the Recycle Bin and follow these steps.

1. Open the Recycle Bin.
2. On the View menu, click Details.
3. Click Arrange Icons and click by Delete Date. This allows you to filter this list according to the date when the files were deleted. If you know that your files were lost yesterday, you can look at this date.
4. When you find the document that you are looking for, right-click on it, and click Restore.

Search for Word Backup Files.
Many users rely on the Always create backup copy setting (see Tools > Options > Save tab) to automatically create a backup copy of their files.
While the obvious advantage is that it always creates a backup file, the downside is that it makes Word work with difficulty. As it has to continually save backup copies, it will reduce your computer's performance. Quite often, Word will freeze when it backs up a large file.
To find the backup file, follow these steps:
1. Open the folder where you last saved the lost files.
2. Search for files with the .wbk extension. (Word BacKup)
When you find a file that has the name "Backup of" followed by the name of the lost files:
1. In Word, click File > Open.
2. In the File of type box, click All Files *.*, select the file, and then click Open.
If the .wbk file is not located in the original folder, search the computer as follows:
1. In Windows, click Start, point to Search, and then click For Files or Folders.
2. In the Search for files or folders named box, type *.WBK.
3. In the Look in box, point to the arrow, and then click My Computer.
4. Click Search Now.

Search for Temporary Files.
If you can not find the file by these methods, you can search for temporary files:
1. Click Start, click Search, and then click For Files or Folders.
2. In the Search for files or folders named box, type *.TMP.
3. In the Look in box, point to the arrow, and then click My Computer.
4. If the Search Options are not visible, click Search Options.
5. Click to select the Date check box, click in the last "n" days, and then change "n" to the number of days since you last opened the file.
6. Click Search Now.
7. On the View menu, click Details, point to Arrange Icons, and click by Date.
8. Scroll down searching for files that match the last few dates and times that you edited the document.
Search for "~" Files.
Some temporary file names start with the tilde (~) symbol. To find these files, please follow these steps:

1. In Windows, click Start, click Search, and then click For Files or Folders.
2. In the Search for files or folders named box, type ~*.*.
3. Click Search Now.
4. On the View menu, click Details and then sort by Date.
5. Scroll through the files for documents that match the last date that you edited the document.

Search for AutoRecover Files.

Word creates AutoRecover files of the documents that you are working on whenever it crashes. When you re-open Word, it displays these AutoRecover files in the Document Recovery task pane.
If Word finds the AutoRecover file, the Document Recovery task pane opens on the left side of the screen, and the missing document is listed as "document name [Original]" or as "document name [Recovered]".

1. Double-click the file in the Document Recovery pane.
2. Click Save As.
3. Save the document as a .doc file.

If the recovered Word document is still damaged.
Microsoft Word tries to automatically recover a damaged document if it detects a problem with the file. You can also "force" Word to try to recover a document when you open it.
1. On the File menu, click Open.
2. In the File of type list, click All Files *.*.
3. In the Open dialog box, select your document.
4. Point to the arrow on the Open button, and then click Open and Repair.
