This is the first time I have ever posted in a Forum... I hope its the right place.
I am no expert but I had been using a normal PC with XP and nothing seemed to complicated. I just got a new laptop with windows Vista.  I saved a word file the other day directly in a folder inside the Public Folder. When I went to open it the next day it seems to have disappeared. I tried it again and sure enough it disappearsed. If I save files in the folders of my own account there is no problem. What is going on? More importantly is there any way of recoving the file I lost as it has really important notes from a meeting! I have searchered everywhere with windows search and with Google Desktop and there are no signs of it anywhere. There is only a shortcut in "recent documents" and when I click there it says the file no longer exists. Please help!

Welcome to Geekzone. I suppose the account you are using runs with Administrator rights? If yes then you should be able to see all the content on your drive, but if not then it could be "blind" to that content.

Thank you! Yes the account has administrator rights. I have checked the security settings and I am the owner of the folder I created - so that doesn't seem to be the problem. If I create a file in my own account and then copy it to the same fold in the public file that works - the file doesn't disappear the next day.
