I saved a Word document on a flash drive by mistake after making changes to it. I tried right-clicking and selecting properties, but no window opened up that said previous versions. I want to get back to the earlier version. Can I get back to the earlier version of a Word document?

It's possible to get back to the earlier version of Word document on flash drive. You can return to the earlier Word document version using the Restore Previous Versions feature or using EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.
The first method is to restore an older version of files using the built-in program 'Restore Previous Versions'. Follow the steps below:
Step 1. Right-click the Word document on the flash drive, and select 'Restore Previous Versions' in the menu.
Step 2. Go to 'My Documents Properties > Shadow Copy', and open the backups ordered by date in the list.
Step 3. Double-click the Word document on its date and time to view its contents in the 'Date Modifies' window.
Step 4. Open the earlier Word document, click 'Restore' to get it back, and save it to a new location.
If you accidentally deleted the earlier version of the Word document, you can use data recovery software to restore the earlier version of the Word document on your flash drive. Follow the steps below:
Step 1. Open EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, and choose the flash drive partition where your Word document's earlier version was stored before.
Step 2. Click 'Scan', choose the file type as Word on the file type filter, and find the Word document you want to restore.
Step 3. Select the earlier version Word document, click 'Recover' to get it back, and set a storage location to save the recovered Word.
