  1. hi,
    i opened a file (attachement) from an email, and didnt save it to disk right away, i proceeded to make changes to the word file and update a report i am working on. for some reason the window i was working in closed as i was on explorer and i cannot find the modified word file. i searched for it to the best of my knowledge but cant find it....HELP!

    what can i do?

    If you didn`t save it to disk first,it will have only existed in volatile RAM memory.Meaning that if it closed for some reason,the changes would cease to exist.Normally you should have been asked if you want to save the changes first.Sorry for the bad news.
