I changed a document in excel and for one reason or another it hasn’t saved although I did print it out at the time. I have no file now to recover and have lost the hard copy , is there away to recover what was printed from the canon printer?

And you have no back-up!

Possibly, it depends on the type of memory that your printer has, but I doubt it.

Years ago there was a scandal, when it turned out that many Photo Copier/Scanners kept images of their Scans in their internal memory, so I doubt it

No backup unfortunately.....do the files that are printed get kept on pc?

I don’t have the document at all

What Printer is it and, has it been turned off since the "foul deed" was done?

It’s a canon printer...it has been off but not unplugged....it powers itself down

try this in Excel 1. Go to the file tab and click on ‘Open’ 2. click on the Recent Workbooks option on the top left 3. scroll to the bottom and click on ‘Recover Unsaved Workbooks’ button 4. Scroll through the list and search for the file you lost. 5. Double-click on it to open it 6. The document will open in Excel, all you have to do is hit the Save As button
