I recently saved a document over one of my homework in word. My text is now all gone and I can't find a way to get it back. I already tried to see if there was a revision history active or too Ctrl+Z ad infinitum with out any succes. Any idea of How I could get this my homework back?

In Windows Vista and 7, my only suggestion is to go to the file in Windows Explorer, right-click it, select Properties, and look in the Previous Versions tab.

Good luck!
