A staff member has been creating excel spreadsheets on her local computer and saving them on the C drive on the server and  discovered yesterday that August and September are missing.  How are we able to find this files on the Server.  I have looked on the server and have not stumbled across these yet.

    This staff member did get married in August and we created a new Profile for her and now she thinks these two files may not have come with her new profile.  We have deleted her old profile.  This is what it says when she is trying to pull up one of the files:
    C:\Dpocument and Settings\users name\Desktop\Hospital\Charges\September2009.xlsx
    If you are trying to open the file from the list of most recently used files, make sure the file has not been renamed, moved or deleted.

    Download and install the free utility "Everything.exe" on her workstation. It will search for all occurrences of [filename] and if it exists, it will find it.

    Install it on the server, too.

    If the file cannot be found, better extend her honeymoon, eh? ;-)

    Accepted Solution

    What we have discovered is she had another profile that has been deleted and these files were on this profile.
