    How can I find Temp files in AppData

    hiya - I realise I was saving work on a downloaded attachement without doing
    'save as' Now I can't find it - I don't believe it's completely gone - I saw
    a folder/AppData/Local/Temp string - might it be there and anyway I can't
    relocate that string!
    please help
    thanks alot

    The Temp folder should be here:

    C:\Users\your username\AppData\Local\Temp.

    The AppDat is normally a hidden folder, so you may need to select
    Organize/Folder and Search Options/View Tab. Select the "Show hidden files
    and folders" option.

    Let us know if you need more help.

    Thanks alot - that got me the Temp list - but I can't identify the attachment
    in the list.
    Where else might it be or would it be one of the trillions with a codifiied
    name ie HD something?
    i've re-done the lost work now but on the other hand I'm determined to
    extend my competence - even a bit!

    You would need the exact name of that file to find it.

    The main thing you want to do is get in the habit of saving an attachment
    that you intend to edit to a known location on the hard drive. Then you can
    open the file directly from that location and you will avoid this situation.

    Ronnie,

    How is Vista Ultimate handling streaming vids? They don't seem to be
    getting saved in the temp folder cache. On my XP machine they are saved to
    the temp internet folder. On my Vista machine they aren't. Do I need to
    change a setting or is Vista handling them differently?

    Sig
