Hi,
I'd been working on a MS Word document for 2 hours when Word crashed. When I restarted Word, all of my changes were GONE.
Can anyone tell me how to recover my temporary document? I tried to look at my Windows/Temp folder but I'm on my work computer.

Hello,
You can recover your word file by following simple steps.
Open the Office 2010 applications that you were using.
Click on File tab -> Recent.
Click Recover Unsaved Documents if you are in Word 2010, Recover Unsaved Workbooks if you are in Excel 2010 or Recover Unsaved Presentations if you are in PowerPoint 2010.

Your saved drafts folder will open in a new window. Select the file and then click Open.
In the business bar at the top of the file, click Save As to save your file to your computer.
See if the following article would help also:

Another way to access unsaved file is given below:-
Open the Office 2010 application you were using.
Open a new file or any existing file.
Click the File tab.
Click Info.
Click Manage Versions.
Click Recover Unsaved Documents if you are in Word 2010, Recover Unsaved Workbooks if you are in Excel 2010 or Recover Unsaved Presentations if you are in PowerPoint 2010.
You will see the list of your unsaved files. Select the file and click Open.
In the business bar at the top of the file, click Save As to save your file to your computer.
If that doesn't work then there is an option to try to restore database using Word Recovery Toolbox. It is a powerful tool for data recovery. They have a demo version. So you can check it works in your situation or not. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/word_recovery.html
