You may have spent a long time constructing an extensive essay, an article, or a report, but accidentally saved over it with an empty document. It seems all hope lost. Fortunately, there are some dependable ways that can recover an overwritten Word document quickly and effectively. Now, let's go through them one by one.

1Undo Save in Word

If you accidentally saved over a Word document, the best and easiest way is to recall the operation. You only need to press Ctrl + Z at the same time, then you can recover the document to its previous version.

2Recover Word Files from the Temp Files

While working on a Word file, if you forget to save the document then Office creates some temp files automatically as a backup. It creates a new temp file after a specific time without overwriting the previous ones. So if you accidentally saved over a word document, you can find your required file from the temp files. However, you need to enable the AutoRecover option before you overwritten the original document.

To recover overwritten Word document, you will have to find temp file folder on your PC. After navigating into temp files folder, you will find different temp files there. You can locate the temp files folder as follows:

Windows 7/8/10: C:UsersUserNameAppDataRoamingMicrosoftWord

If you are also a regular user of Microsoft Excel program, temp files is also a workable way to recover unsaved excel files.

3Recover a Saved Over Word Document from Backup Copy

Old Version Of Microsoft Office

Apart from temp files, MS Word also creates a backup copy for your document. However, this feature is disabled by default. You have to enable it beforehand. Once enabled, it will create a file in .wbk file format in the same folder as the original file. If you accidentally saved over a Word document, you can navigate to the file location and open the .wbk file, then save it as a .doc or .docx file.

Note: If you haven't enabled this feature yet, you can navigate to File > Options > Advanced > Save > Check 'Always create backup copy'.

4Restore a Word Document to Previous Version

If the above method doesn't work, you can try to restore accidentally saved over files by recovering a previous version of it.

Step 1: Create a new Word file that has the same name as your accidentally overwritten Word file or locate your overwritten or saved-over Word file.

Step 2: After creating a new file or locating the old one, right-click on the Word file. A menu will appear, select 'Properties' option there.

Step 3: You will find a 'Previous Versions' tab. Click on the tab. You will find different versions of your file. Restore your required version.

Note: 'There are no previous versions available' often occurs since Windows won't backup your files automatically. You need to turn on the 'File History' feature. Open Control Panel and select 'save backup copies of your files with File History' under System and Security. You can turn on the File History in the next screen.
