I have been working on a word doc, which I saved every 5 mins, I came to close it down, and it saved but the doc changed, with little squares where words used to be, then it closed down. I tried to get it back, now its gone missing, I've tied a search everywhere on the hard drive, anyone can help. I'm running win XPpro and word XP
Thanks

try a search for *.doc if you dont know the name of it.this should list all with that extension.

when you opened it and it was squares and symbols etc.are you sure you opened it with word and not say notepad etc?

Or just try opening the top file shown in the list in the File menu.
