    I have been working on a word document which I genuinely believe I save correctly however... I no cannot find the document.

    I first open word > recent and the document was there but was saved in a folder that said:
    >> var >> folder >> p7 >> (big long number) >> T >> com.microsoft.outlook >> Outlook Temp
    and when attempting to open, it said that I had no access to it.

    Ive googled what this is and how to access this temp folder which I've been able to do but I cannot find this document ANYWHERE...

    Its now no longer even part of my recents on word.. has this gone forever ?!?!?

    Please help

    Take it to a repair shop. They know the internals better. In some Linux variants, the temp folder is cleared automatically on schedule.
