    your probably SOL, auto-save saves the work to the same file that you working with. EX. if you have the document saved as "help" it will resave "help" every 2 minutes, not like some programs where it will start saving copies like "help001"...and so on, so if it didnt save, its probably gone.

    In Word 2000, autosave doesn't overwrite the original file... it creates a second file. Here is a little information that may help you recover the file.

    Microsoft Word 2000 Autosave

    Good Luck!

    You are able to recover your work. You need to take the help of third party tool as Word recovery which recover your file.
