I some how saved (i think) a Microsoft Office Excel file that I was working on to my Office 2011 AutoRecovery file folder. However I'm unable to navigate to the file an access it. When I go to my AutoRecovery file through finder, I do not see the file name in question listed. However, if I have a new excel document open and hit "save as" the AutoRecovery file is the default folder being shown and I can select the file in question, to save over. I'm hoping the file still exists.

I have also tried searching the file name in Spotlight and it does not show up.

Any help is appreciated. I would rather not have to recreate this spreadsheet.

Thanks!

You're going to have to re-create the spreadsheet. The Microsoft Auto Recovery is next to useless. Unless you selected "Always make a backup" in your Office 2011 preferences, your file is gone.

And personally ALWAYS save XL spreadsheets on the desktop.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
