How can I find the last edit made to a Word 2010 file?

Last Modified: 2015-03-03
Is it possible to find the last edit made to a Word 2010 file after the file has been saved and closed?  The machine on which the edits were made essentially doesn't exist anymore.  However, the file is on the same drive that it was on when it was being edited.  Naturally "Track Changes" was turned off :)

I'm certainly willing to look at a VBA solution if that's what it takes.

Thank you
