ok so i was dumb and didnt save my stuff and i accidentally closed out of microsoft word..and i know that word saves your stuff automatically from time to time. I found the .tmp file and i want to get it to convert or open or whatever as the .doc...is there a way to do this???? word didnt crash or anything, so it doesnt come up as a restorable file....garr!!!!

So TMP files created by word are usually just scraps of the document, not a full backup.

You can try to open the TMP file in notepad or word and see what happens.

you'll have to take what you can get; since the file wasn't actually saved, that is the only data still written to the drive.
