i dont think there is any way of saving word documents... now if u accidently deleted the file then maybe.. but M$ Word 2003 (and maybe 2007, not sure) has a cool feature, when u accidently lose a file.. (like lets say ur computer unexpectidly shut down. when u boot back up and open word. it'll have a thing on the side that asks u if u'd like to save it or somethin. it happened to me once..) i hope that made sense. lol.. What M$ word are u using..

try right clicking the file itself and go to "open with..." choose notepad and see if you can see any of the text from the file.
