*sigh* I run PageMaker 6.5 on Win 7 (yeah yeah I know it's ancient software, but I own it). I worked on a file for hours tonight, saved it a few times, closed and reopened it, closed it again (with one hiccup, but it opened all right the next time), and saved again. I did not Save As ... which it as it turns out was a mistake.
After the final close, I had to work on a printer issue so I downloaded some drivers and had to reboot a few times. After getting that sorted, I reopened PageMaker to continue work and .... the file has disappeared from my drive.
The file was supposed to sync to another drive via Windows Sync Center (which suuuuuucks btw). Apparently it did not. I've searched the drive and other drives to see if it was somehow moved. It wasn't. It's just gone into the ether with no trace.
I've searched for .tmp files to no avail. I downloaded Recuva and scanned every drive and folder I can think of with no related results. I can't figure out where Sync Center physically saves the offline files on my drive to specifically search there. Any ideas where I can look?
Anything else I can do to locate remnants of the file? Otherwise I get to spend the day recreating the file.
Thanks in advance ... I will bake you virtual chocolate chip cookies if you can help ...
