    Missing 'versions' (Word XP)

    Howdy folks,

    I'm supporting a user who (despite my suggestions) likes to use the Word "version" feature. Lo and behold, she recently got her document back only to find all her previous versions are gone.

    I never use this feature so I couldn't give her much help/advice (besides "don't use it", haha). Can anyone here provide some help? Is there a way to retrieve those previous versions (hey, hope springs eternal, you know) or to prevent this from happening in the future (besides "don't use it")?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi itsjustb,

    The easiest way would be to restore an earlier version of the document from the backups I'm sure your user keeps as a safeguard against just such an occurrence!!
