One thing I did that limits the loss of data was to set the autosave to 1 minute, understand that is may autosave a page of asterisks depending on how long you wait or the cycle of autosave.However, I found that if within a few seconds of the 'asterisks attack' you force quit word without saving, the recovered version is normally a very recent autosave, not the page of asterisks. This technique, although far from perfect normally limits data loss to less than a minute, rather than an hour as would be seen using timemachine.
