Outlook 2007 attachment received; hit Save instead of Save As and now it is lost?
Posted on 2011-02-21
A colleague at work received an email with an attachment in it. The attachment needed to be completed and then sent back to the original sender.
Now my colleague opened the attachment and completed it but instead of hitting Save As, hit Save and closed the Excel document attachment.
When my colleague realised what she had done, tried to open the email attachment again and the changes were not saved.
Where could this document have been saved? Also how can it be retrieved? Is there a temporary cache that it could have been saved to?
I tried to check the Application Data folder but as it is a work PC I couldn't find this folder and The Start>Run option has been disabled by our organisation so I can't use the %Temp% option.
Can this document be retrieved or is it lost forever?
Thanks in advance for any help offered. :)
