I'm having some difficulties opening some documents in Word 2003. I had previously saved the documents directly onto a flash drive, without thinking of the possible consequences of not backing up the files someplace else. That was ok, until I lost the flash drive somewhere in my house, and though I've looked everywhere, I can't seem to find it. When I checked my recent documents folder, only shortcuts to the documents remained, and they do not work. Now I am unable to open the documents I was working on; when I try, a box appears and says that the file is corrupted. Is there any way I can recover the files from the computer without the flash drive?
