My daughter was dragging a word document that she completed from her wireless laptop to the dinning room desktop computer (wired to the router). The file disappeared from her computer and never showed up on the dinning room computer. I thought usually the file is just copied and not actually moved when you drag to a network resource. Also, sometimes, my router is intermittent. I don't know if that is the problem, just wanted to add it to the mix. Thanks for any help you can give.


Ps. Backup was not enabled in MS Word, and I searched for "*.wk" and "*.asd" files and found nothing.

* Windows XP SP2, MS Word 2003

As I remember, the file type for Word is .doc; for Excel it is .wk.
Try doing a search on the .doc file type.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Yes, the extension for Word is ".doc", which I did search for. The backup file extension for Word is ".wk" and the recovery extension is ".asd".
