Urgent Help needed - can I retriev dd's unsaved word document?

11 years ago

So my 13 yo daughter - who knows to save her work as she goes, was on a roll. She typed an entire essay - and assumed word was autosaving as it went. Then the computer just shut down (I think it was doing windows updates in the background - but am not sure why it rebooted).

We restarted the computer - opened word - and it had only saved the first paragraph and a half.

Is there a way to retrieve what she wrote?

Should she stop doing any more work on that computer so that she doesn't get rid of any traces that may still be there?
