    My microsoft word documents are gone now that I've rebooted my computer.

    When i try searching for a document that i know the name to...i can find it

    though and open it. Its like their gone...but their still there. Does anyone

    know how to bring up all the other documents because

    i cant remember all of their names and they don't show up under my docs.

    Thanks, Bobby :)

    Hi jbb04

    Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

    What operating system and version of Word are you using?

    In what location/directory do you usually keep your .doc files?

    Did you do a Search for: .doc files?
    The files you did locate, did you notice what directory they were in?

    I'm currently using Microsoft Works version 8.0 for Windows XP. The

    documents i searched for and found were in HP Pavilion C: Documents and

    settings....usually in one of my old - MY Documents. I tried searching all

    files and folders for .doc files but didn't find anything. I managed to find

    more word documents from dates back to 2006 and 2007 when searching

    in HP Pavilion C: Documents and Settings, but i know i had plenty from

    2008 though. If i dont end up finding them its no biggie...i just wanted to

    retrieve some of my old workouts plans and school essays that i had

    typed.
