If a word version x document is deleted, is there a hidden backup, I deleted an important document and it was the only copy.

Not unless you chose to "always make a backup" from the Office "Save" preferences of Word.

It would be in your Time Machine backup also...

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Or your external hard drive if you backed up using SuperDuper or CarbonCopyCloner software. Trust you did have a backup?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

If you delete a document, it will be in your trash can.
Unless you cleared that as well. ( Manually or automatically )
Then it is down to having backups.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

Thanks everyone for your responses, yes I understand that lost is lost, just being wishful I guess, I have since selected "autosave copy" on Word preferences, and thanks again.

Be advised that the "autosave" feature of MS Word is not dependable and difficult to use. As I stated in my original reply to you... "not unless you turn on always make a backup". You do know that you can choose that from your Word preferences save features? That will ensure you will always have a copy edited from when you opened the file.

I appreciate everyone's help, yes I have now selected "always make a backup" instead of autosave, and will be more secure with Word files, thanks again.
