    I am about to cry right now. I've been working on a major paper for one of my classes. Over the weekend I wrote over 2000 words for it. I came on today to open it and it is missing those 2000 words. I realized what I did was open the document from Yahoo Briefcase instead of saving it to disk. I then saved it to whatever temporary folder it was in without realizing it and now i can't find it! Is there any way to get it back? I searched and found nothing. I really need help with this. Thanks. :wtc:

    the file might be saved in a temporary directory with a truncuated name, so search for *.or whatever the extension is on your computer, and look for something like PAPE~1.doc or whatever it was named
