HELP-my pendrive has broken(almost snapped in fact) and contains word files that I need tomorrow. The files were only saved on the pendrive-will there be a copy hidden anywhere on the laptop's hard drive that I can access?

All help appreciated cheers

If you had autosave on there may be files in the 'temp' folder. if you can remember the names do a search on the name.

Normaly it is the connector that breakes away on pen drives and they can be soldered back to at least allow you to recover the document. You need a small soldering iron and good eyesight!

no such luck-tried a search earlier and nothing found.

I'm sure there must be some clever way of doing it...
