“I downloaded an attachment and forgot to put it into one of my Word folders; I started to work on it. As soon as completion of my work I used to click save option every time. However, at last without clicking on “SAVE AS” option suddenly I closed Word document. Later when I opened document, I couldn’t able to see those files and I couldn’t find it anywhere. Is it completely gone or saved somewhere I can’t find it? Can I recover it? So please suggest me best solution”.
Document is a textual electronic form of information which can be saved in a computer, laptop and other external storage devices as a file. These documents can be of various types namely Microsoft Word (.doc), Adobe Acrobat (.pdf), Excel (.xls), Images (gif, jpg), Text (.txt) to name a few.
Users generally store docs in PC`s, USB drives and other supported external devices from where they can retrieve data safely. But do you think storing them in these devices will really preserve them forever? These documents are prone to loss / deletion due to various reasons. Some such factors are mentioned below:
- Accidently deleting crucial documents saved on Windows system hard drive using “Shift + Delete” which erase document file without moving it to Recycle Bin.
- While using Windows Disk Defragmentation utility one may encounter errors resulting in defrag failure, in such cases saved document may get deleted
- Anti-virus software may delete saved document while scanning drive if the file is infected by virus.
- While using cut and paste command, saved document may get deleted from the source location when moving process is interrupted due to errors.
