These files contain a snapshot or backup copy of the currently opened Word document. These files are also known as AutoRecover files and would attempt to load the latest version of the document. AutoRecover is only effective for unplanned disruptions like as a power outage or a crash. These files can be located in the following directories: WindowsVista/7: [user]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\ and Windows XP: [user]\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\.To open an ASD file, choose File then Open, select "All Files (*.*)" in the File type list, and then choose the ASD file. When creating a document it is important to enable the autosave and autorecover options and specify the minute time required. The default AutoSave period is 10 minutes. Files in ASD format can be opened with Microsoft Word 2010 in Microsoft Windows based Systems.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .asd. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
