    Hidden Outlook Temp folder

    Hello guys, as I have by accident save some changes to a document in the Outlook Temporary folder. Well the document was been emailed to me. As I searched for the document by using the spotlight, it was not be found or even be able to search also. When I search for Outlook Temp folder, then it was also not there. Well I am able to search for the hidden email messages, and also able find hidden folders, but I am not able to find that file. Even the Saved Attachments folder indicates that I saved a document during that time of period that I saved it, telling that it is within the folder itself. There is no document with the proper title name in the folder. So please help me with this and give me some solution for it. Thank you.

    You should click on the option of show3ing all the hidden folder in the folder view option of the folders and also in the computer itself, then tries to find it on the computer.

    Try to upgrade to Office 2011 by this end of the year. Well none of your files will be in the Saved Attachments 2011 folder or in the Auto recovery folder 2011 after you having done the upgrade. Actually they were all prior to that, when you might be using the Office 2008. So just try to switch over to the higher and find that you are getting the same problem in that also. If you are getting the problem then it is due to the system not due to the system. So you better check it out. Even you try to find the previous files which you use to have it in your system and also you were able to find in the same folder. So you also check for that.

    Actually the default Outlook temp folder is been located on the below given path,
    ~Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/Outlook Temp
    So you can search for it and check if it helps.

    Re: Hidden Outlook Temp folder

    The above user has just given you the link of the temporary folder, so you can go on to the folder and check for the file which you have done the editing work on it. The path is the correct and also the best to find the file in the folder and the get the data of yours. The path is been is hidden and it is not easily seen by the users so you have to find it on your know. So the path will be the correct and also the proper way to find the folder and also to find the file which was not been spotted by the spotlight during the search time of the file. Hope you are able to find the solution.
