The document is not there. I can see the same version from two days ago nothing from today or yesterday. I'm very disapointed.
Expert:  NewITZone replied 2 years ago.
There is no alternative way to find out your files. I know this is not what you want to hear from me and am very sorry to give you this piece of bad news, but it would be unprofessional to do otherwise. I hope you understand.
Thank you.

One more thing you must undo the folder option settings.
