Word document metadata

  GGTaylor 13:16 18 Jun 2008

Hi there, first post!

I received a word document which I believe may have been edited and altered secretly. I can't find any information about it using the "properties" feature.

I have heard that deleted information and information regarding dates, times, content of editing is saved in the file somewhere even when the file has been set up to hide or "delete" meta data. Does anyone know an easy way to see what has happened to this file?

Any advice appreciated....

Try this:
Select File/Open

Browse to the file you want to open

In the Files of Type field select Recover Text from any File (*.*)

Open the document and all data is viewable

Thanks, I tried that but it doesn't yield anything new. I need some hard core techniques I suspect...

can anyone help?

Bump.........anyone got any ideas about this?

I really need to know the last time this document was saved by the sender and when they last modified it.

I wouldn't say it was life or death, but it's critical to my career and this information could prevent me being screwed over by a malicious individual.
