How to search a lost file on Your Computer?
Button, point to Search, and then click For File or Folders, a
Search Results dialog box will appear. In Search for files or
folders named, type the file name or folder name you want to find in
containing text. Here I recommends you, try to search a file with
its file extension for example for word file, type here .doc, it
will search word file only. If you don't know the name of file
but know that it contains a string of text then try to search for
files containing specific text, type the text you want to find from
any file or folder. This is time taking process but creates very
precise result. In Look in, click the drive, folder, or network you
want to search. To save time, always select the specified drive or
location instead of whole computer.
