What version of Windows are you running and what version of Excel do you have?


Did you open the Excel spreadsheet from an Outlook EMAIL? If yes then it might be in your Outlook OLK folder:

Find the Microsoft Outlook temporary OLK folder


There is also an Excel folder you can configure. With my install that path is:



However I'm running Windows Server 2008 and Office 2007 (Excel 2007). To find your location do the following (outlook 2007)


Click the Office Button in Excel (Top left orb), Excel Options (Bottom Right of PopUp Menu), Save - From there you should see your AutoRecover paths.




If it's not there you might be able to use an undelete program to undelete it. Or if your using VISTA, you might be able to use Previous Versions / Shadow Copy to grab a copy of it.


Keep us updated!
