K, so I opened an attachment from an email and started working on it, finished it, and just hit save thinking that it would save into my documents. It didnt... now I am out a few hours and 2 pages of research. Anybody know how I can recover these files? like I saved it and everything, i just didnt go into file save to specify to save it under my documents, anybody know where these would have ended up?

where did the attachment come from? If it was a program, check the preferences to see where it downloads files to, it could be in there somewhere. If its from like hotmail or gmail or something, it could be in your temporary internet files. I'd search through there and see if you can find the file name. If it didn't prompt you for save info I'd assume it would have correctly saved on your Comp, just need to track the file name. Maybe try looking at the file name from the email then putting it into the windows search and see if anything comes up.
Worth a shot...

Well i figured it out after hours of trying to find it, I started off going through all the files and everything, but then I did a google search, and found a program that went through all the system files and everything that you can't access yourself, and it ended up finding it, so I didnt end up losing all that work!
