If word crashes at the most elaborate time where you currently haven’t saved your document, you can still see the files deep within word. Here is how you can restore your file. Please note: if word closed successfully the auto recover files will be removed and you will lose the chance to restore the documents.
Open Word and select File, Options.
In the Options dialog box select Save from the left-hand menu. Note the Auto Recover files location.
Open Windows Explorer/My Computer
Select Folder and Search Options.
Select the View tab.
Remove the tick next to Hide Extensions for known file types.
Select the Show hidden files, folders and drives radio button.
Move to the location found in step 3 above.
Open the folder which has your document name (with %20 representing spaces).
Copy the .asd file.
Return to Word and click on File, Open
Scroll down until you can see the Recover Unsaved Documents button and click it.
Paste the copied file into the folder
Open the file
Save the document.
