Hello Meg! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Have you searched for the document name and/or checked the temp folder yet?

Note: please do not re-open the same document from your gmail email.

Can we do a screen sharing session, so I can chat with you and help you directly?

Thank you

Edit: I'm really sorry; I could not find it; the edited document may have been overwritten as it was re-opened again from the email. Next time, make sure you save the document to a folder you want first, then you can edit it. Thank you.

On your Gmail, do you still have the Word file from original email or Drive?

When did you save the file?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


I saved the file around 7 or 8 on 7/1/2013

Thanks for your reply.

Do you still have the Word file from the original email? Or after saved it, it disappeared on Gmail as well?
