What is the full path of the temporary office 07 directory on windows vista or windows seven? A PowerPoint presentation was overwritten, are there any other options besides checking the said temp folder?

You might check Volume Shadow Copy (File -> Properties -> Older Versions). As far as temporary files, you might look in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.<officeapp>\ where <officeapp> is "Word" or "PowerPoint". Depending on how critical the file is, you might also try DiskInternal's office recovery applications, I've found them to be excellent in personal use.

Vol shadow copy did not work. Unwashed looking for that path, thanks. – Moshe Jun 8 '10 at 2:35
