    well i know word creates a backup of unsaved files in format .asd
    but iam interested, would these files still be there if you shut down your computer?

    also, does anybody else know any other ways in which to recover unsaved word documents on your computer?

    kateman-
    I know it has been awhile so you may have already found a solution. I'm not 100% sure if it works once the computer has been rebooted, but there are applications that you can use to help recover deleted files. Here is a link to the programs. Link

    This is another site I found with a free utility called restoration. You may give it a try as well. Link

    Good luck!

    thanks syxguns but iam not that worried about it. it was just out of interest since a friend forgot to save some files and shut the computer down and i would have had no idea what to do if i was in that situation . but i doubt it would ever happen to me :p
