Can't find my Auto Recover files
Posted on 2009-05-01
I'm on a network computer at work, and when I logged in this morning all my key folders and files were gone ... overnight. So I went looking for my Auto Recover files and here's the exact location specified in the Save tab: "C:\Documents and Settings\rdstemp\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\ " However when I go to "C:\Documents and Settings\rdstemp\..." there's no "Application Data" folder inside it.
So I went to the Adminstrator account and got this far: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\... " but the only folder inside it was "Intenet Explorer"
I frequently saw the auto recover engine saving, but the expected folders don't exist. My worst case scenario is that who ever deleted my originals also went in and deleted the backup folders. But assuming there's no one that clever and diabolical around here, what's my next step?
