Recovering Unsaved Versions

Have you ever made great changes to a document and then accidentally closed the file without saving? One of the great new safety-net features in Word 2010 is your file is saved for you in case you forget. Because the program stores your unsaved files automatically, you can return to a previous version if you need to find information you accidentally deleted or items you revised in error.
