    Disappearing Files (XP/Office 2003)

    Recently installed Office 2003 - and I seem to be losing files I've saved. No recovery task panes appears, and I can't seem to locate the files anywhere. Have done all the updates in both Office and Windows . . . any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Do you have a "filing system"? For example, do you create subfolders under My Documents for business, personal, kids, etc.? Where did you save the missing files?

    (Note that if they were attachments to Outlook 2003 messages, the changes might only be in the attachments themselves, or perhaps in the temp folder Outlook uses while you are editing attachments. This assumes you saved the changes "to the message" when Outlook asked.)

    hi,

    Well, no real subfolders - just disappearing Word documents . . . also, its nuts!

    Thanks.

    Can you explain the exact sequence of steps you take when you save a file from Outlook. That might help us understand the cause of your problem.
