Needs major help to recovery doc with temp profile! (NEW)

  1. #11

    What accounts show up under C:\Users? Seems like the doc you wrote would be stored under the temp account you were logged in as, not under your normal account.

    One thing you can try, install Everything Search. Once installed, let it start and wait until it displays data, then in the input line, type .doc.
    All files with .doc will be displayed. See if any of them are the one you want.

    Being that it was a "Temporary Account" there's a chance that any data you saved was only saved in memory, and not written to disk.

    If that's the case then unfortunately there's nothing that can be done.

    If you enable private messages on your profile, I'll send you something that will definitely find the file if the data is at all still present on the disk in any readable form.

    Temporary accounts still reside on the hard drive and should be listed under C:\Users.
