I have accidentally deleted all of my document that I was writting in Word. I closed it and hit save changes mistakenly. Now that I've reopened it I can't seem to get Ctrl-Z (undo) to recover my info.

Is there another way to get my document contents back?

Unfortunately, I don't think so.

If you are using Windows Vista or 7, view the file properties (Alt+Enter) and there is a "Previous versions" tab. But that also depends if you run regular backups and create restore points.

Tip: get used to keyboard shortcuts, it really helps minimize clicking save by accident. We all learn the hard way eventually.

This is exactly what I do to some documents before deleting as I don't want them to be recovered or undeleted. So my condolences to you...

In the future you may have luck turning "Track Changes" on, but that won't save this document.

In Windows 7 if you right click on the document there is an option to restore previous versions, for example one that might have been created at a Restore point.
