Where are Office 2010 files saved?

I have a user that was working on a word 2010 document and at the time of saving the file, she ran out of space on her home directory due to enforcing quotas. Word prompted her the file could not be saved but she said she continued working on them. We cant locate the file. Can someone tell me where else I could look - other than asd files?

She was probably working om the file that was located in the tmp. If you're lucky it's still there. Below a link with all methods on how to find a lost word document. Also the method for finding in the temp. If you tried all the methods described and you haven't found it.

Then unfortunatly it's gone forever.

In addition to the temp folder, there is the Auto Recover folder:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\  on my computer. Look in Word, Options, Save options.

If this is what Xaelian meant by temp, my apologies.

You could seach the computer for the file name or part of it because the operating system was not related in the request this is probably the best bet.  Especially, since we never know what users actually do when challenged.
I would recommend just reading my link. Explains every possible location + explains the solutions the other experts give.
