I had uploaded a MS Word document to an online storage site (JotSpot) so that I could work on it from another computer. When I got to the other computer, I opened the doc, and have been working on it for 3 days. I had previous versions of this document saved on the desktop saved under slightly different names. I kept clicking on "save" to make sure my work wasn't lost, as this is an 8 page doc with extensive work.

Well, I closed it and only then noticed it wasn't on the desktop as I thought. I did a search, it didn't come up. So I did a test - I opened a different document which I named "Findability.doc" from the online storage, and hit "save as"... and what automatically came up is:

documents & settings/my name/Local Settings/Temporary Internet Files/ContentIE.5/6RGV7WLS

(**a few other tries brought up a folder with a different alphanumerical configuration each time

So, I saved it. Then when I went to look in the location, it wasn't there! Did a search for "findability", wasn't there!

Where on earth is my document, how can I access it?

Of less importance: anyone know how to revert to a previous version of a document, is there a way to do that?

Have you tried logging into Jotspot to locate the document?

It appears Jotspot is a web-based WYSIWYG wiki program and not a dedicated word processor. So, if you worked on the document through your web browser, but saved it locally, it may have been saved to your IE cache.

If you are using Internet Explorer (and you have not deleted/cleared the cache), you could try using History Search. A free trial version can be downloaded from http://www.etopping.com/ie/historysearch/

It allows you to search for text in the IE cache (regular Windows searches may not search the cache). So if your article was about Hannibal, you'd enter Hannibal in the search box and if there were documents in the cache containing that word, they'd show up in the results.
