Word Versioning from Word 2000, is no longer available in 2010?

Is it really true that the below feature, Word Versioning, is no longer in Word 2007-2010?

I've seen the list dealing with objects, tables and shapes that are not compatible in 2010, but I can't find this particular function.

It can be found in Word 2000,  File>Version menu. When turned on, it automatically keep tracks of each "save" you make to the word file and enables you to retrieve the previous version of the file.

Note: I don't believe this is File >Info> Versions, in 2010. I tested it and I don't think it's the same thing.

Any clarification would really help.

Have you tried the Version Extraction Tool described in that link?

Users are in a locked down environment. We can't use any other tools at the moment without cutting through red tape.

I just want to know officially has it been removed in 2010, and then I can start my red tape cutting there.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

I found the answer I was looking for on office. Thanks for the reply GrahamSkan.


Auto Versioning

Word 2010 automatically saves copies of your document while you edit them. This helps you recover documents if you accidently close a document without saving your changes. You can choose how often your document is saved by clicking the File tab, under Help, clicking Options, clicking Save, and then under Save documents, change the Save AutoRecover information. You can access the last AutoRecovered files by clicking the File tab, clicking the Info tab, and then clicking the document you want under Version. Word 2010 periodically deletes the AutoRecovered files if you do not open and use them. You can also manually delete the AutoRecovered files by clicking the File tab, clicking the Info tab, clicking Manage Versions, and then clicking Delete All Draft Versions.

Hmm. Autorecover isn't quite the same thing as Versioning.
