HAPPENED TODAY. I haven't switched the laptop off since this happened (in case that helps find it!!). I was working on a Doc and decided to put it into a different folder, which I did. I also happened to empty the Recycle Bin. So the original was deleted! When I went to work again on the doc, now in its its new folder, it wasn't in the new folder!! Ooops! I have searched nearby folders in case!!. I looked on line and found free and trial software to download that retrieves lost files. Ended up trying 3 different ones to no avail. None of them are bringing up that document. In fact they dont seem to be recovering any docs from Jan 2015 that have been deleted. kvisoft - EasyUS Data Recovery Recuva. The first two programmes go thru everything on the drive without offering an option to even limit the search - even to documents - so it takes ages (to do a deep search). Recuva at least offered choices of Documents and Deleted from Recycle bin. It still didn't refine it further and so found many years of them. Didn't find the one I delted today or any from 2015. Such a pity these programmes don't allow a seach for a Doc lost TODAY or at least some more refinement for those of us who know exactly when it went. Anyone have any idea of what else I could try. I am not a techno wizz.
