    you'll find it soon, it won't be far away.
    Didn't you back it up on your computer as well?

    Sometimes you can be just too efficient, deleting things and not backing up to your computer. I like to print things off and go through them the old fashioned way, with a pencil. I can always find the castoffs in the shredding bin(I have abpout 3 months of shredding to do..LOl)
    It'll be on your desk st work, hopefully!

    Can't your tutor just send it back to you?
  • A-VicA-Vic Expertise Guaranteed Posts: 6,970Registered
    he said to just carry on with it from the stick which i did that was over a month ago i would basically have to start it again
  • jiltjilt Font Of All Knowledge Posts: 2,903Registered
    It would save some typing if you got his copy back and continued from there, or have i got the wrong end of the stick?

    As FG says it could be at work, or could your other half have accidently picked it up when they stayed over easter?

    Have you looked into "deleted items" bins in your email folders?

    If your tutor is a typical college tutor, he is unlikely to have deleted your e-mail sent. I am sure he will have a your e-mail attachment in his/her e-mail inbox.

    good luck!

    i did exactly the same thing and my tutor said she never keeps anything eek. i luckily had saved an older version under a different name and salvaged it form there, it was an older version but saved me doing it from scratch

    hope you find it to save this hassle

    I did the very same thing, although I managed to get a copy of my report from my sent items.

    Good Luck in finding / trying to get a copy.

    Aww sorry to hear that Jewels!

    Have you considered the lost and found box at work?

    When we found some money in the department and it didn't get claimed in a week's time, my teamleader bought chocolates for the department from it. Do you think you could drop it at the accounts department of my work place the next time you drop it?

    I found a £5 note in the Gretna area last year, which I thought was quite lucky!
    and no, I was not there getting married - just passing through.

    I didnt lose it at work or I would have had the place torn apart until I found it. I was in another town so someone there was lucky that week! Next time I want to throw money away I will throw it in your direction though! lol

    Maybe that was the change of my tenner that somebody found!
