    Hey guys, i have vista on my laptop with word. i had to write a paper so i started it on my desktop then emailed it to myself so i could write the rest of it on my laptop.

    once i finished the paper i went to click save as and when i was saving it i was talking to someone, so i wasn't really paying attention to what the boxes were saying, just clicking yes. once the file was closed i went back to see if i could find it and its no where to be found. not even in recent documents or ANYTHING :wtc:

    on a side note, i clicked open file with...(word 07) instead of saving to the desktop in the beginning (which i was retarded for not doing in the first place)

    am i screwed? i thought word 2007 was supposed to auto save every 10 mins. any help would be greatly appreciated :sadwavey:

    just the obvious ones...
    -Try doing 'save as' again and see what directory it starts you in and try and trace your possible steps if you went to another directory

    -Do a search for the document if you remember the name you gave it

    As far as I know, the auto-save feature is more incase word fucks up or your machine shuts off with it open it will automatically bring it up when you start word/computer back up.
