Trying to recover a Visio autosave document

I was working on a big PERT chart in Visio. Since AutoSave was turned on, I was lax about saving. I worked on the Visio document for about 1.5 hours without saving. (I know, big mistake.) Visio crashed, and the resultant recovered file is unusable.

Here's my question, the AutoSave message flashes on my screen every 10 minutes. Can I access the AutoSave version of the Visio file 10 minutes before the crash? It seems like a reasonable request, but for the life of me, I can't find instructions on how to execute the recovery.

Have you looked in %temp% for all .vsd documents?  (File->Open->Type %temp%\*.vsd into the filename textbox).

If this yields any results, sort them by date modified; hopefully then you will find your file.
