Hi Kim,

It may be too late for this time, but I\'ve only just seen your message.

I\'ve often found \"lost files\" in the Word folder (C:/Windows/Application Data/Microsoft/Word).

Sometimes they also turn up in the Temp folder of Windows. I save automatically every minute, and can usually find documents that I accidentally lose.

You could also try using the \"Search\" command in the Start menu, entering a section of the text or a keyword, which sometimes leads you to the stray document.

Good luck!
