    I have a strange problem. So, my dad was working on a doc file on his usb and when he tried to save it Word gave him "somekind" of message. He clicked ok and the file went missing.

    Now, I have no idea what the message was and neither does he since he doesn't understand English.

    I tried data recovery tools but neither found the file.

    Do any of you have an idea what went wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, but it's impossible to tell from "some kind" of message what may have happened.

    If you mouse over the Word icon in the Start Menu, the screen should expand and show you the recent file history (unless you've disabled the history).
