Default lost word doc when computer crashed

When the computer crashed, i used recovery to re-save the files but they are missing a huge part of the text. I need to find an old version from that day or the day before, hoe can i do that? I have searched the computer everyway i could think with the search feature I think i need to try to find it in the recovery files, does the system save those? or the automatic saves as you work? I think part of the missing text may have been written on the machine but saved on a flash.
The same issue with two files, I am not 100% sure of file names but i have one that was supposed to contain that section combined (it is part of a book..a section of the chapter...most of it)

You could try searching for the autorecover files, which have the ASD file name extension.
