How To Retrieve The Unsaved Documents When The Computer Suddenly Shuts Down?

When we use the computer, sometimes there will be document losses because of some accidents. For example, when you are editing a document, the computer suddenly powers off. When you open the computer again, you can not find the original document. Such things are really annoying.


"I'm an author of online novel. I usually save the chapters of the novel manuscripts written in Word in a folder on my D drive. Today,I wrote a chapter with thousands of words and it's almost finished. But the computer suddenly went black. After checking, I found that the computer was not plugged in. The battery of the computer had run down. It’s really terrible for me! Is there any way can help me?”

After seeing the example above, do you have the same feeling and worry about your lost documents? Come back to earth! Now we’ll tell you how to save your documents by taking the novel manuscripts mentioned above as an example.


Solution 1: Retrieve the documents by Auto-Recovery Function in Word.


The first solution is to restore your manuscripts by auto-saving function in the Word software. Now let's take a look at the specific operating steps.


1. First,open the main interface menu to click the Info / Manage Documents.



2. Find the Manage Documents button and click.



3. What you need to do at this time is to find the option of "Recover Unsaved Documents" from the drop-down list and click on it, as shown in Figure 3.


4. The interface will show the document you edited last time. Then select the document, and click "Open" in the lower right corner, as shown in Figure 4.


At this time, the manuscript is successfully recovered and a prompt is displayed at the top of the document editing. It is recommended that you should save the file, as shown in Figure 5.


But if the editing software you use unfortunately has no auto-saving function, you can't retrieve your manuscript in this way.

What to do at this time? Please don't worry, the next method is simple and easy which will absolutely meet your needs. Now let’s take a more detailed look.


Solution 2: Use UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free to recover lost documents.

Step 1: Select the format of the missing data.


First, please open UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free. What appears in front of you at this time is the data format selection interface.

There are two lines of icons representing file format in the interface. Please read them carefully. You need to select the file format at this time. Please check the second icon from the left of the first line.

After the check, a small circle with a check will appear in the lower right corner of the icon. At this time, you can click the "Next" button on the right, as shown in Figure 6.

First, please open UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free. What appears in front of you at this time is the data format selection interface.

There are two lines of icons representing file format on the interface. What you need to do at this time is to select the file in video format. Please look carefully and check the second icon from the left of the first line.

After the check, a small circle with a check will appear in the lower right corner of the icon. At this time, you can click the "Next" button on the right,as shown in Figure 4.


Step 2: Select the original disk the novel was on.


At this time, you can see the interface of selecting the disk. Next, you need to select the disk where the lost manuscript is originally located.

The manuscript was stored on the D drive, so please select the D drive. After the selection, a small circle with a check mark will appear at the right end of the disk name row. At this time, you can click the "Scan" button on the top right to scan your D drive, as shown in Figure 7.


Step 3: Scan the disk


The scanning process takes a certain amount of time. The length of time is determined by the files stored on your D drive. The more complex file type and the larger file size will take the longer the scanning time, and vice versa. This is as shown in Figure 8.

Normally, if your disk has about 2G video format files, then you can complete the scan in two minutes. Please wait patiently.


Step 4: Select your lost novel for restoration.


After the scan, you can browse all the files on your D drive through the left column of the interface.

Now, you need to browse rank by rank. Then find your lost document and select it. And click on the "Recovery" button in the upper right corner, as shown in Figure 9.


UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free offers two scan modes. One is the quick scan we just run. The advantage of this method is that it is fast, but some deep files may not be scanned.

But you needn’t worry about this. There's another deep scan that can help you solve the problem of not retrieving files, but it takes a little longer. At this time, please click on the "deep scan" button in yellow font at the top of the interface. UnCutData Recovery Wizard Free will scan deeply for you immediately. Please wait patiently again, as shown in Figure 10.


After the deep scan, find your lost novel. Select and click the "Recovery" button. Then your manuscript will return to you intact, as shown in the figure below. (Generally speaking, it's better to run a quick scan first and then a deep scan.)

Even if you do not have any professional knowledge and skills in data recovery, or if you are a novice with no experience in computer operation, you can still easily complete the document recovery.
