Closed workbook expecting it would be in "my documents", no trace of the file anywhere, no OLK folder, no sign of file in local settings/temporary internet files. i do have the entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" under the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security
I can't find the cached version of the file anywhere, I have show hidden files/folders enabled.
I do have autosave enabled.
Ouch. I know how it feels losing a days worth of work. The worst part is when you have to recreate what you've already done.
To answer your question, when you found the Entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" what was the path in the DATA column? I assume you reviewed this post here to find it. It looks like you found the registry key entry so your more than 1/2 way there. Find that key again and you should have the path to your OLK folder and your Excel should be sitting there.
Now the path might be a bit confusing because with Outlook 2007, there actually is "NOT" an OLK folder. For instance, on my XP/Outlook 2007 install, my OLK folder or "Temp Outlook Folder" / "OutlookSecureTempFolder" is:
"c:\Documents and Settings\mrgroove\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\4V32TZLP"
So if you look on your box you will find what your looking for in the "Content.Outlook" folder. Take a look there and your golden.
Let me know how this works for you!
