    So, my sister was an idiot, spend a couple of days on iWork writing something, left it open and never saved. It crashed after hours of being open, any way she can get it back?

    pretty sure not. I have had this happen a couple of times, so now I use ForeverSave lite which saves work in alot of applications automatically.

    iWork doesn't have an auto save feature?

    How others recommend this over Office amazes me.

    As much as the fact that, still, people can't be bothered to save work in progress or backup their data?

    Auto save isn't required if my sister wasn't such an idiot. Seriously, an important document open for 1-2 days, and never saved.

    You know I never realised iWork didn't autosave.

    I'm so paranoid I save whatever I'm doing to a flash drive and my desktop every 30 mins anyway whether I'm on Office or Pages.
