    Accepted Solution

    If it was saved directly to the thuumb drive, then you won't be able to retrieve the data without the drive.

    Not from what you are describing. Your PP program may have saved temp files while she was working on it, but probably would have deleted them by now. Those temp files show up automatically sometimes when your MS Office program crashes. But that is not what you are describing. Your only hope might be to search your drive for keywords from inside the document. Long shot, but you might find something.

    If your machine has been powered off / restarted since your last save then the temp files will have been deleted.  If your file has only been saved in one location (the flash drive in this case) then you are out of luck.  The flash drive needs to be recovered.  Do you know if you've emailed the Powerpoint at any point?  If so, you can check your sent / Inbox of your email program.  Best of luck.
