Windows 7: Files disappeared...

Files disappeared...

Hi everyone, I'm not really sure if this is the right place to post this, but last night I was finishing some work that I spent a lot of time doing this week and as soon as I was done I hit save. I know I saved it to My Documents and I know what I saved it as. So I closed Microsoft Word and it didn't ask me if I wanted to save, which usually means it was already saved. But when I went on to attach it to an email, I couldn't find it anywhere. I tried searching my computer tons of times and tried different suggestions that people had for Vista and XP, but I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem with 7. It's never happened to me before on any OS, and Windows 7 hasn't really given me any problems up to this point, so I'm really confused. I'd really rather not have to redo this work. Thanks in advance.

Ok since you know the file name have you used search? Is the entire drive indexed in search?

If it is not found, did you have the auto save every "X" mins on in word?


If all else fails you can try a undelete app like recuva.

I tried searching tons of times. And right now it's set to "Save AutoRecover information every 10 minutes". I'm downloading recuva now so I'll see if that does anything for me.
