Please Help! I was working on a school paper and I attached it and sent it to my email so that I could work on it while I was at work. When I got home and opened my email attachment, I saved it and continued to finish my paper. When I attached it to submit to my teacher, it only sent the original draft. I am going crazy trying to find my paper!!! Is there a way to retrieve my word doc?

You've discovered a little bug in Word. When you open a Word attachment and "Save" it without specifically selecting a target path, the file is saved in a temporary folder. You can try a full drive search for the file name. Be sure to include hidden files and folders. You could also try any number of data recovery applications to try to restore it, but it may have been overwritten too many times to recover.
