Pleasee if anyone has got any ideas, send them this way...

This afternoon, downloaded a word document called 'A2 Coursework - LATEST' from google, which must've gone to a temporary folder, as I did not chose a location.

Have been working on it all night, just saved and closed it, and I cannot find it anywhere! I have tried searching my computer for the file in question, but.. nothing found!

Any ideas, really appreciate it,

what search terms have you used?
You can search by File type (.jpg: .doc)or by File name, etc.
Have you tried searching by date last modified?
That sometimes throws up something.

If you saved and closed it,would it not be in the file list when you open word.

Sorry mis read post.
Go to download a file from the internet and see where it wants to save it to.
This should be the place your previous download went to.(hopefully).

Click "Start" and point to "My Recent Documents"
Just had a look at the site you mention, and notice that it is a PDF, not sure if this complicates things.
If it was indeed a PDF you were editing, say so, and others may be able to assist.

Hi six-h thanks for quick response, have searched My Computer (+ Hidden, System files) for both:

.Doc files and modified today, has come up with nothing relevant.

Seems as if it's gone forever. Am on Microsoft Word 2007. I can't believe it can just go, especially since i saved it and everything :(!!

hi, sorry just got latest messages - and realised i said google - appologies, i meant from my googlemail. Is not in my recent documents, but will have a look at downloading a file to see if it is in the same folder.

Thankyou so much for your help, tom

Don't give up, it must be there somewhere.
I just tried to save a page direct from the web, and it sought out a folder that I had used to store web pages!
Try the "my recent Docs" option described above, it should show up in that list, because you've been working on it.

  six-h 00:13 18 Sep 07

Were you working on it in google docs.
If so, it will be in a folder on the web!

if coolteentom is correct then do a search for pdf files on your pc.
