My wife was working on her computer yesterday and had added 1200 words or so to her file in Microsoft Word 2010 (OS is Win 8) - she believes she had saved the file however the next day all her changes were gone.
I have attempted to find autosave files or recover unsaved documents - have tried a number of different methods for locating the files but to no success.
I have tried running recuva including a deep scan which has also not found anything.

Does anyone have any other recommended solutions?
