Default How to recover lost content from Ms word 13 ?

Hello everyone,



I am currently writing my thesis. For one section of the thesis I have been saving the file on my flash drive. I saved the file and remove the flash drive safely and was trying to work from my laptop (mac) and I realised I lost the contents I have written from last 2 days. Is there any solution to this ?

Thank you in advance

Flash drives are notorious for losing data and should be avoided as save locations ALWAYS save to the hard drive and COPY to the flash drive. Then COPY to the hard drive for editing. Had it been a PC, you could have used http://www.gmayor.com/SaveInTwoPlacesAddIn.htm to save the document and copy it to the flash drive, but it is not compatible with the Mac.
