You may have encountered a situation when you modify a email attachment file which comes as an email attachment from someone, after making all the modifications to the file you have closed that file editor program.
But after some time, you are not able to locate the modified file because you have opened it directly from email message on Outlook.
Real Time Example:
‘This problem stated above is quite unusual but has happened with with one of my office colleague when I have mailed some SQL Alter Scripts in a file called alter.txt, and she modified and saved it but does not remember where she has saved the file”
Let’s see how can we find the modified and saved file.
Follow the procedure below to locate the modified file:
1. Open Start >> Run and type “%Temp%” (without quotes).
2. Click on LOCALS~1 in the left side blue bar or press “Up” button in the explorer toolbar.
3. Open the folder Temporary Internet Files, you will see a folder name starting with OLK ( this is the folder where that modified file is located).
4. Double click to open this folder (OLK44) and you will find your modified file.
Tip: It is always recommended to first save the attached file from the email to somewhere on known path before modifying it.
