Now that you have the file, start keeping proper backups.  For the most important work, I'll often save as a new version for each new day.  Drive space is cheap and Word documents take very little room.

You'll want to store copies on a separate drive and/or online backup to protect against drive failures, fires, etc.

Dropbox is good for backups.

USB flash drives are dirt cheap. 

Make backups often.

I like BackBlaze which backs up to the cloud, automatically (which means I don't need to remember to do it)  :)
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Also, ingratiate yourself with the NSA. I'm sure they have a record of your every keystroke and would be more than happy to do you a solid in the future.  ;D
