Help! Lost document!

Specs: Windows Vista
I have been working on a master's project in
Word and have had various versions going; last
night I made all my corrections on one version
and saved it, then opened it this afternoon and
finished everything and thought I had saved it
again before emailing it to my prof, but the
emailed version turns out to be from 2 days
again and this is now the only version showing
up on my computer! Even if I mistook and
didn't save today, there should still be last
night's version, but it's not there. I have already
tried looking through all the other documents
and autorecovery files (empty). Does anyone
have any other ideas for recovering a
document in this situation? If I could even
recover last night's version it would save a lot
of work.... Thanks!

You can take your system to a recovery expert (like Data Doctors, here in the Valley of The Sun). Just be sure you have your checkbook with you. Have you tried Googling for recovery software? Problem is, you don't want to disturb your hard-disk any more than necessary as anything that you change will potentially over-write the physical area of the hard drive that contains your deleted file images. Best of luck!
