I had a document opened and was apparently a saved copy that was opened from a USB disk,

along the line I took out the flash drive, so, . . later, having forgot that, . .

 

I decided to close it and if I am not mistaken received a message that the document was already opened, I'm sure there was more details but in any case thinking that I have seen this before, (other times on my other XP-OS-PC), . .

 

I eventually closed in thinking it safe to do so, I guess I should have looked at the path of storage, . .

 

Its gone and so checking the previous files on the Flash Drive and my Documents file, it is there

but does not seem to be the one I closed, it had specific details that the now accessible ones are not showing.

 

Is there a way I can retrieve that doc or see if there was a doc that went to (wherever those things go), because MS does not provide a path for it to go to the Recycle File ?

What type of document was it?

As far as I am aware, Wordpad does not have an autosave function, so I do not think you will be able to recover the file.

I see, thanks Budapest, Its a shame that fabulous search isn't able to pick it up for me,

 

just kidding, . .  but the search although fast doesn't seem to be as good as the XP search.

 

there seem to be quite a few deficiencies in 8.1 that will take some getting use to.
