Recovering Word 2010 File

I had a Word file I'd spent all day working on a few days ago, located on a network drive.

Go to open today, lo and behold, its gone. Our data drive got restored to before I saved it.

Grasping at straws, but I dont suppose Word saves a copy locally anywhere within the profile? It didnt crash so its not a "recovered document".

Don't think so. Word usually creates a temp copy in the same directory that the actual file is in (usually named ~$[my document]).

How was the drive restored? Complete image copy or just files copied back?

Not sure on restoration. All I know is I've lost a load of docs I did this week!

if you open word, go to file then options.  Click on save to the left in there is should say autorecover file location browse there to see if its located there

Autorecover is usually only for if Word crashes or is closed without saving, but it doesn't hurt to check.
