Word document saved in Outlook email

Question: Word document saved in Outlook email

I opened a word document from an email (attachment) and worked on it and hit "Save". I am unable to access all the work, and the "Search" is unable to find the document.
Can someone guide me how I can retrieve the file?

I am a newbie and I would appreciate any help urgently.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Word document saved in Outlook email

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Word document saved in Outlook email

The easiest way to figure out where your document went is to open an email message that includes an attachment, open the attachment, then go to File--> Save As. The Save As default path is always the same for emails, and the reason the search doesn't find it is because it is hidden in a temporary internet file folder. (Something like C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK) Chances are as soon as you click Save As, you will see the document sitting in the temp folder. Then instead of saving the dummy doc you opened, simply right click on the doc you want, and hit copy. Then paste it somewhere (like your desktop for easy access), and there it will stay! Hope this helps!!

Hi,

I am developing an add-in for outlook that consists of creating a customized send button next to the standard one. when outlook is configured to use the word editor, when I add the customized send button to the command bar of the mail in edit mode, the add-in is also added in word document. The reason is that the word editor is activated in outlook. How can I tell my add-in not to add the button in word as well. I don't want to deactivate the editor word. There must be a way how to detect the opened application. I searched for my problem on the internet and people said to test if the kind of the document is word mail or word document. Here's part of my code that didn't work correctly:


//event triggered when item is opened

private void Inspectors_NewInspector(Outlook.Inspector i)

{

//some code to test if it is a maiitem, etc.



Word.Document document = (Word.Document)i.WordEditor;





if (document.Kind.ToString() == "wdDocumentEmail")

addsendbutton();

}

The problem is that the button is still showing at word level. Visual studio is not launching the condition on all the windows. So he?s adding it in word as well, although word document is a wdDocumentLetter.



I have 2 options in mind:



1- The code must not be called at new inspector level. Because this trigger is not launched in the case of the word document

2- The inspector from which we get the word editor is not the right one for word document (Word.Document ... Read more

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.
 

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

I'm afraid not! When you are working on a project what ever it might be most programs are not saved to hard drive automatically. They are stored in whats called a temporary cache file until save. When the program is closed the caxhe file is released.

Hello,

My girlfriend was using an email service on IE and opened a document (via IE) and worked on changes, all the while clicking the save icon to save progress.

Where on the hard drive are these files typically saved? We've since tried to re-open the file after shutting down the computer and can't find it anywhere.

Speedy help would be very much appreciated!

Answer:Where online word document was saved to.

It's a bit unclear what the service was she was using but maybe you could try this..

Go back into ha service and create or work on another document.
Instead of clicking on the Save icon, look for a 'Save as' option.
Clicking on that option should bring up the path where the documents will be saved to by default.

Hope that helps some.

I am having the following problem with data loss in Word documents.

I have a 3 person Network One Windows 98, One Windows XP Professional and One Windows XP Home. The Network is a Per-to-Per Network working using at 10/100 Switch at 100Mbs. Every thing has been working fine until the other week.

What happens is Word Documents are Created and Saved on the 98 PC in Office 200, then the user of XP Professional opens them in Office XP and changes them and Saves them to the 98 PC, then the user of the XP Home PC opens them in Office XP and saves them to the 98 PC. He then opens the file again alters the data and then saves it, under another name to the 98 PC.

This is where the problem occures, if you access the new file that has been created all the data has been lost and jumbled letters are all that is in the document.

What is strange is that, this does not happen every time, only about once every 10 documents. I dont think it is a virus as I have updated the virus scanners on the XP machines and checked them, the 98 machine does not have a virus scanner on it as it does not access the Internet. Equaly thought it could be a virus that Norton is not detecting, but it could be something else.

Does any one have any idea, what might bwe
 

Answer:Word Document losses all its data after it has been Saved

Could it be that your XP user is set to save documents in the later (XP) format by default? The earlier version of Word may not be able to read XP documents correctly.

Try getting your XP user to save using 'Save As ...' from the 'File' menu, when the 'Save As' dialog box opens click in the box labelled 'Save as type:', scroll down to find the file type for Word 2000 (or whatever your earlier version of Word is called) and select then click on the 'Save' button.

If this does the trick you might consider changing the default file type in XP. You should be able to do this from the 'Tools ... Options' menu - click on the 'Save' tab and change the entry in the box labelled 'Save Word files as:' (at least that's how it's labelled in Word 97, hopefully the same in XP).

I don't have XP so I'm basing this on my experience with Word 2000, Word 97 and earlier versions - all of which are used by different users around our office network. We sometimes have this problem with documents received from clients.

This afternoon, a user at our computer was manipulating a few Microsoft Word documents (Windows 98) and accidentally saved one of the document after having deleted all of the text in the file. She closed out of the program, and I do not know how to recover the original document.

When I open my original document, nothing is there. I cannot find the deleted data.

Is it possible to revert back to the last saved version?

Thanks so much for your help and time in advance!

Answer:Word document saved in deleted state - help!

Sorry to tell you this but I think that you are probably out of luck. Did you happen to ever email the document to anyone? If so, Maybe Outlook still has the file in one of its memory caches or messages. Word offers a limited degree of protection for its documents by re-saving them as Temp files but they are indeed only temporary and usually only available during the current Word session. In addition to this, since the document was saved, it is possible that the temp file that once existed was also overwritten with a new temp file of the modified document. Sorry about your lost document....believe me, it's happened to everyonoe at one point or another. My own Word disaster incident involved a massively time-consuming term paper written in college years ago.

I'm using MS word 2007 on Vista. Months ago, I made a document then saved and later then whenever I open MS Word, it appears "that document" as a template. How can I erase that document and go back to a blank .doc page?

Answer:MS Word.. My saved document becomes default template

Hello sirivarin,

Welcome to the forums.

Only thing I can think to cause this is that you inadvertently saved the file with the .dotx extension. If you need to keep the file, open it and save as a .docx file, then delete the file with the dotx extension.

Please keep us posted.

I had two versions of a document saved on my computer; one on the desktop, one in a file folder in My Documents. I thought I was working with the document in the file folder in My Documents (we'll call it the "My Doc" file), but I was actually working with the desktop file (Desktop). I wanted to update and save My Doc while keeping the other version (Desktop) as it originally was before the update (making a sort of archive of progress with the document). But, instead of doing that, I got confused and saved Desktop as the changed, new version, and then, in a effort to make sure I was saving the right document, did a Save As and saved (and replaced) the My Doc file. So my questions are:Is there anyway that I can revert to the original document (before I Save and Save As'd the documents), in either the Desktop or My Documents? Is there an AutoRecovery file or something like that that may have been preserved before I saved both documents as the new, changed file?

Answer:How do I revert to a previously saved version of a Word document?

What type of document created by what type program?If it was word using Word 2003 upwards then you may be able to revert if you had document tracking option switched on (it isn't normally on by default). Type in document tracking in your world help menu to learn about it if you are using Office 2003 or later.

Hello,

I am having a nightmare. After working on a MS Word 2007 document all day (and saving it several times) I seem to have managed to accidentally save the final version as an old version, completely losing what I have been doing all day.
I started off the day with the original document (titled version 1). I had opened this and saved a new version (version 2) which I could edit. I added lots of information and pages to the version 2, saving all along. I then (luckily) printed the finished version2. BUT when I went to close down word I somehow very stupidly was not concentrating and have ended up with both files being exactly the same copies of version 1. I therefore seem to have lost all of the work I put into version2. Is there a way of retrieving this? Please please please help me! Both files were saved in My Documents. I am using MS word 2007 and have Windows XP Pro.

I'm going to tell the whole story incase the answer is somewhere lost in one of the steps I took. I'm writing a paper for school and it needs to be on Word 2007. I have two accesses to this type of Microsoft Word. At my boyfriend's house and at school. I started it at my boyfriends house and didn't have my flash drive, so I e-mailed it as an attatchment to my yahoo e-mail. When I was at school, I opened it and worked on it again. I saved it. Later still at school, I opened it, worked on it again and saved it. As I was saving it I realized that the one I had originally opened from my boyfriend's house was the file extention .docx and the file extention my school uses, even though they both are Microsoft Word 2007, was .doc. So I saved it twice just incase one file wouldn't open. When I got to my boyfriends house, I opened the .doc file. It came up and I finished my paper. Throughout working on it, I randomly and continually clicked the "save" button. Not the "save as". When I was finally finished, I went to upload it onto the internet to turn it in like I always do, and I couldn't find it. I of course closed the program before I realized I couldn't find it, so I couldn't try to resave it as something else. I know I saved it more than once. I looked everywhere I can possibly think of!!

Using the menu option I could convert to frame and read text that way (a job rejection letter!)Anyway, I then forwarded the email to my yahoo email account, where the attachment was scanned and the document opened in all its glory, including the company logo and graphics.....So far I have checked that both documents are loading up the same version of word (same license number and version) and am stumped......I have norton installed on my PC so at the moment am debating if there is a problem with that when it is scanning the ntl delivered document (if it is) or maybe even if my outlook needs reinstalling.I can't blame ntl if the document forwards to yahoo ok.reopening the attachments for both sources several times and I get the same result so it isn't a one-off glitch.....Confused?

Answer:word document not opening properly from email

Word is opening the document differently from outlook. It opens it in report layout and I have to click on the actual page button to display the contents of the document. If I save the document and open it it opens up normally. very odd.

Ever since I migrated to a new machine running Vista, Outlook is not saving my passwords for my email addresses even though I have checked the "Save Password" box.

The passwords are lost whenever Outlook is shut down.

When I bring Outlook back up the "Save Password" box is stillchecked but the passwords are all gone. Of course I get errors when email tries to download. This is very frustrating because I handle a lot of email accounts and it takes time to keep re-entering the passwords.

Answer:Email Addresses Not Saved In Outlook

I'm not 100% certain here but it seems as though the upgrade didn't handle Outlook very well.

And let's just clarify, is it the Commercial Outlook or Outlook express that was bundled with XP?

This is somewhat important. I suspect something a the registry is causing this issues. If you could, please try to
duplicate the error and paste a screen shot here so I can better assist.

There are a lot of steps in between. Does the file open on the flash drive? What about when copied to the computer? What version of Word was it created with? Using standard fonts? Any special coding?

Answer:I cannot find a word document I opened as an email attachment

The file will be located in a folder somewhere in
C:\Users\(youraccount)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet
Files\

"\AppData" is normally hidden
"\Temporary Internet Files" is normally a hidden protected Operating System
file

You'll have to remove the checkmark (if they're hidden) in Windows Explorer:
Organize - Folder & Search Options - View

Good luck in finding it, though.

The correct way is to save the attachment first, then open it
from the saved location, if you wish to edit it.

I removed the SmitFraud trojan from a customer's computer, and she reported that when she composed an email, the word "crap" appeared in her email three times. Sometimes, she composes her emails using MS Word and copies and pastes to Outlook Express, and she could not remember if she used Word this time or composed the email in OE directly.I removed SmitFraud using SmitRem, SmitFraudFix, RogueRemover, and CCleaner. The first time I did this, she encountered some remaining spyware the next day (XP Antivirus?), so I did the same thing and then followed up with a Hijack This log. I removed an entry that referred to "BrowsingSoftware", and that took care of most of the problem. Then, a few days later, she encountered her "crap" problem.I then tried running RogueRemover again.

For the first couple weeks I had the program, the saved email displays each individual email size. But after a certain point, all the emails now display "0 bytes" under the size column.

The emails send with no problem, and save into the folder with no problem, it's just that for some reason something changed and that folder now shows each email as "0 bytes".

You could try to move the outlook express data over.

If the old pc is an XP Pc then look in drive letter:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

If the old pc is vista then looking in drive letter:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

Look for your emails. There should be a bunch of accounts with a file name ending in .pst

I have a Microsoft Word document produced in Word 2003. This has been added to a great number of times since 2006. I have copies saved in July 2007, October 2008,December 2008 and end January 2009. These are all backups produced at the time. All were fully readable. The latest version, only worked upon last week, shows the first eight pages as normal and then the balance is pure hieroglyphics. On reverting back to each of the earlier backups they all reveal that same rubbish but starting at different pages.Clicking on the text that is gobbledygook shows that it is Times Roman Special G1. Selecting that text and changing it back to its original Times New Roman or any other font style simply shows the text as rectangles/squares.As a tremendous amount of effort has gone into this document can anyone suggest a solution to this?

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Answer:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

Regards

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help".

Hi,

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word.

I need to convert 1,500 outlook emails into word documents or text documents.
At present I can convert them individually into individual pdfs and then from pdfs into word but this is taking ages. Is there a program I can buy to do this ...or other suggestions? Thanks!

I have a user that about two weeks ago just out of the blue had an Excel document give the error "Document not saved" when she pushed the save button. I tried everything under the sun I could think of but nothing fixed it. The next morning it just worked and we didn't worry much more about it. Jump forward to today. It is happening again to a different file. All other Excel files are opened and saved fine except for this one. We can open it up, make changes but it won't save. We can open it up and save it on other computers just not this one.

Background: She is on a Windows 7 computer with Office 2007. It is an Office 97-03 document. It has always worked before and all other documents work fine.

Thanks!

I hope I can explain this adequately. I use a website (Ancestry.com) from which you can save an image on your harddrive. I went to save and the usual window opened up which was "documents library" though basically "my documents" folder - I saved to a folder within this location. When exiting the website and going to "my documents" folder, it was not there. I realized at this time, actually, that I've had this problem before. Though the file was definitely saved, it does not show up even in a search of the entire C drive. Returning to Ancestry, this time, instead of saving to the default folder, I went to C - users - my user name. This time there was a "Documents" folder in the list. Not "My Documents" - just plain "Documents." THAT was where the previously saved file was. I still cannot find it anywhere on my harddrive with a search, nor is there any plain "Documents." folder when I try to access it outside the saving process. I read this discussion on the difference between "documents" and "my documents" and it seems as if there's not really supposed to be a difference. My experience doesn't jive with that, but I have NO idea what the answer is. If it was just an Ancestry document, it would be annoying rather than important. However, my son also lost a work-related document he thought he saved in somewhat the same situation. Can someone please explain this (in somewhat simple terms) so... Read more

Answer:Saved document lost

Hello Clairespin, welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

In Windows 7, the Documents feature is actually a virtual library (which is why you couldn't see it when you searched for it) where you can link to files from different locations on your computer.

For example, I have a data folder on a separate partition where I keep all my personal data. If I then right-click this folder and select Include in Library it will appear in the library I choose even though it hasn't been moved to the library.

Libraries just make it a lot easier to keep tabs on your personal files by allowing you to look in one location for them rather than several locations on your hard drive.

By default, the Documents library includes your My Documents or Documents folder and the Public Documents folder, but you can add any other folders you want.

Answer:Excel - Document Not Saved

Hi

It's possible the file could have become corrupt. Perhaps copy and paste your data to a new workbook and try saving again.

Hi,

I opened a document from my email (Microsoft Exchange) that I had worked on from home. However, I started this document at work and had it saved in its own folder. When I opened the document from my email, I continued working on it and saved throughout the process. Now, I can't seem to find the new, saved version of the document anywhere. Why is this? Is there somewhere I can look to see if it's there? I checked my temp folder (Start -> Run -> %temp%), and it wasn't there. Please help!

Hello,
I have an excel 2000 file (size: 12.5MB). The file is stored on a NT file server. The server is connected on a switch (A). The client PC that tried to access the file is on a BNC cable connection that connects to a 10Mbps hub and this hub connects to another 10Mbps hub and this hub goes to the switch (A). The problem happened when the user tried to update the Excel file. He opened it from the server. He made some modifications to the data and then he pressed the saved button. Excel 2000 begun saving (file.xls) and finally the following error message appeared on screen: "DOCUMENT SAVED SUCESSFULLY. CAN NOT REOPEN THE SAVED DOCUMENT DUE TO LOW MEMORY. PLEASE CLOSE THE DOCUMENT". If I press OK button then the document will be damaged and will not be opened again, so I tried to save it again. I pressed the save option but instead of saving it, I noticed that the SAVE AS dialog box appeared. I thought that something wrong is going on. I saved the Excel file on the SERVER using another filename (file2.xls). The saving process was successful. I closed Excel 2000 and I loaded again. I tried to open the Excel file (file.xls) but the opening failed with the following error message: "FILE file.xls is not in recognizable form ". After that I tried to open the file2.xls and I SUCCEEDED IN OPENING IT WITHOUT PROBLEMS.

I was working in Word 2000 and I accidentally saved one document over the top of another one so that the first document seems to be lost. I had saved the original document several times but stupidly saved something completely different under the same name. The programme assumes it is just a revision of the document so auto recovery and the recycle bin don't work. The computer hasn't been switched off so I was wondering if it is possible to somehow undo the last save I made.

Please help me if you can!
 

Answer:Retrieving a saved over document

Welcome to TSG, Ellie.

I'm sorry that it is probably bad news. You cannot unless you want to pay hundreds of dollars for potential--mind you--POTENTIAL data recovery.

However, I always like to ask:

Did you copy this anywhere else?
Did you email it to anyone and it might be in your sent items?
Did someone email it to you?
Were you at work and this was on a network drive so that you could possibly ask your network administrator to retrieve a backup copy?

I am usually VERY careful about stuff like this, but this one slipped past me, and I clicked "Save" before I realized what I was doing.

I created a document called "March and April" several months ago on Windows 7/Word 2007, using my flash drive. I spent 6 hours updating it at a relative's house today -- on a different computer -- using Windows 10/Word 2013. I saved it by the same name on my flash drive.

When I got home tonight, I decided to make a few more changes to it using my laptop; however, I didn't realize, initially, that my laptop still had the OLD version open and on the screen. So, when it asked me if I wanted to save March and April, it did, and overwrote all the work that was already on my flash drive.

I didn't realize I had done it until I closed the document, so Undo is not an option. I have already looked for a Previous Versions option, and it doesn't exist. I have not backed anything up. I don't have Dropbox. I've already tried Recuva. There are no shadow versions, either.
So, my question is, if I take the flash drive back over to my relative's home, open Word and then click on the "March and April" listed in Recent Documents, which version will open? The last one that was on the Windows 10 PC? Or the one that's on my flash drive? Or could I try it without the flash drive?

Help???

Hello experts...My step-dad's 3 week old Dell 3000 running XP-Pro with Comcast broad band is having email problems using Outlook and Word. His MS Office 2000 was loaded and his Outlook connection was set up by a "friend". I'm a newbie and he's not even born yet as far as his computer knowledge.

He's starting a new business that requires a lot of email contact...and Word, from which they email, is now freezing after each "send". The problem is with Word's email function primarily, but he's experienced problems in outlook as well...actually FIRST. Worked fine for 2 days then the freezing began. An obvious indicator that there's a glitch, is that the tray icon blinks ORANGE and the top bar blinks LIGHT BLUE at the same time after trying to close Word. Ctrl+Alt+Del is the only way out. Happens every time. Could his friend have set this up wrong (I checked in properties to be sure both in & out mail addresses were the same)...does M$ have a "gotcha" in Office 2000 code if the guy used a CD-R copy to download...could it be an undetected "bug"?

During my troubleshooting process, I discovered that the Norton AV email protection had not been enabled, so I enabled incoming, then ran a full Norton, Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D scan. Tried to start as outlook.exe /safe and found that Outlook was running as many times as I tried the safe start...so I closed all that were running and then could at least get Out... Read more
