    If you search for *.tmp files you may find what you are looking for. In future you could select "Always create back up copy" in the tool\options menu.

    usually, it is saved in the same place as the original file (unless it hasnt been saved previously) and its name is very similar except that is has a few $$ sign in front of its name. it is also a hidden file. this is with word Xp
