    Outlook Express - Help!

    Just had a major calamity from the wife, she had a Word document as an attachment, opened it up from Outlook Express (did not save it somewhere first after being told to do so last time!), said I kep saving it as I went along but now when I open it up all my changes have gone!!!!
    I've had a look in all the obvoius places but is there any chance of getting the changes back from a temp copy somewhere? Otherwise I informed her that unfortunately she will have to re do them and learn from her mistakes :-(

    If I remember correctly opening a doc file direct from OE will create a copy in the "temporary internet folder" its worth a look.

    Just had a look in there and in the Content.IE5 folders as well, lots of files but none relating to the work. I think once she exited the document because there were no errors all temp files were cleaned up relating to that particular file, she's not a happy bunny at the moment...keeping my head done, I've already had the blame because I work with computers!
