Thumbs up Word 2010 Autosaved .asd files are disappearing

Word 2010, under File, Options, Save, I have Save AutoRecover information every 1 minute and have Keep the last autosaved version if I close without saving checked. I have a path in the AutoRecover file location blank. When I create a new document, and type some text in there, I do see the .asd backup file for my unsaved document. However, when I close the document and tell it Don't Save, the .asd backup file disappears. I thought that feature meant that .asd file would remain there so I could pull it up under File, Recent, Recover Unsaved Files after I closed without saving. I need to get that working, or understand what I'm not understanding about that feature. Thanks in advance.

Default Word 2010 Autosaved .asd files are disappearing

You told it you didn't want it to be saved. Why would it then go ahead and
save it anyway?

If you discard the *.asd file, then you have also discarded the autorecover
file.

Of course, for Open and Repair to work, there must be something left behind
to recover...
