I've accidentally deleted a Word 2007 doc (not doc.x) and wonder if it's hiding somewhere and can be recovered. For a long time I've been in the practice of writing successive letters by simply using the original letter space to write the new letter and then saving the result under a new name. This morning I accidentally clicked on the original letter's name as I saved and the new letter replaced the old. Can I get it back, please?
I feel slightly embarrassed. Some time ago I fitted a Western Digital external hard drive with backup software, which does incremental backups at 12.00 each day. I'd forgotten about it, guess where I found the missing letter? YES. Apologies but thanks for the response, unfortunately none of it worked and all the avenues I tried are much too complex for my 85 year old memory to recall! Thanks anyway for your help.
