word2010 saved file to desktop not found
Posted on 2014-07-18
Word 2010 extensive and complicated document saved to desktop many times throughout the day. After reloading Word and opening the file, it is an older version of the file saved early in the day. What can be done to find it? They have tried searching for *.doc and *.docx files, checked recycle bin, searched the whole C drive, and all subsequent files saved are gone. Just the one early in the day. Looked in library, documents, etc. Google search showed many using Windows 7 and Windows 8 with Word 2010 having the same "lost" or "missing" files saved to desktop. This is a computer that is not her own computer, but a work computer. Tried searching after showing hidden files, but none found. Did refresh the desktop F5 several times, reloaded word, still the older version. Reboot and reloaded, same thing.
Any clues you can give us are very much appreciated.
