Dear Judy Plum,

To recover your data in Word 2007, first, go to the Office logo (left corner site) where you will see a folder close. It will show here all recently worked documents. If not, use Find and then try to sort the Search option by Modified Date, Created Document, Document Name, or Document Location.

If no document is found, there is no way to recover without use data recovery software. So go to this link and download this software and install:

Remember, you never get any data back if you have just  setup your OS.

I will be happy if I helped fix your problem. Best wishes.

If you seem to lost a document or a file, try checking the items in your recently opened documents. In Microsoft Office Word 2007, click the Office button then on the next screen you will see the list of documents you recently opened. Check the list if the file you are looking for is listed.

In Microsoft Office Word 2003, click “File” then at the bottom you will see the few documents you recently opened. If your file is listed, click it to open. If the file is not listed, try downloading PC Tools Performance Toolkit. It supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.x. It requires Intel Pentium 4 or faster processor, 512 MB RAM, and 100 MB free space.

Once installed, start PC Tools then go to “Recovery” tab and select “Recover Lost Files”. On the next screen, select the scan type and the drive you wish to recover the file from. When you are fine with the scan options, click “Start Scan” to begin scanning the drive. At the end of the scan, see if you can locate the missing file.
