Hi experts,

 

I know the unsaved word documents (.asd files) are saved in C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\UnsavedFiles up to four days (tested myself).  But Is there any way to recover an unsaved word document after four days? I am using Microsoft 365 Word. Without going into much details, this is the only possible(?) way to recover my 10 days of work on for a blog post and any help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

You can search for AutoRecovery files (*.asd) and see what you find.
