Help with a accidentally deleted file RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just accidentally deleted a word file I was working on.  I had saved it to a flash drive which is still currently in the port.  I thought it was backing up but I can't seem to find it.  Any suggestions?

  • Unfortunately, there is probably nothing that you can do.  What little consolation if any you can have however, is that by saving the file to a Flash Drive, it would have probably been corrupted anyway.

    You should never save a file directly to a flash drive in Word.  Always work with documents on the hard drive and use Windows Explorer to copy them to a flash drive if necessary.

    -- Hope this helps.
