Downloading my own books without paying for what I submitted?

I'll keep this short.

Lost original files for books i made and submitted here and are still on my book shelf for over a year now.
I want to be able to download the files directly but see no option to do so.
I do not want to have to pay for my own work that isn't selling anyways and hasn't sold one copy in over a year.
My intention is to take the works, edit, update and resubmit them in a single book format.
Again, how can i do this without having to pay for copies of my own work as i do not see the options present.
I am after all the only author and need to remake everything.

Thank you for your assistance.

R. Foster.

Log on to your bookshelf. Go to the far far right of your book's listing and hover your mouse over the gray box. This will bring up the options list. Select 'Edit Book Content.' Scroll down to Kindle eBook Preview. Select 'Preview on your computer.' At the next screen select 'Step 2: Download and open your converted book file: HTML or MOBI.' Select HTML and download the file.

There are a number of free online services (Google it) that will convert this HTML file to a Word file. You can do a similar conversion with the MOBI option. with Calibre.
