I was writing 4 hours, until my MS Word was closed. I launched app again, but some pages of my word were lost, it were only empty. I almost lost my hope to get my pages back, but...I believe.

I wish you luck. It's awful when that happens. Maybe apple or microsoft forums can be of assistance.

First rule of word-processing: Save your work at intervals you can easily replace the content. In Word, I usually hit save every 5 minutes. Google docs auto-saves every minute or so to prevent loss of your work.

Once unsaved data is gone, it's gone, unfortunately.
