I'm afraid you have fallen victim to one of the deceptive aspects of the
environment. When you open an attachment, no file is actually being created
on your local drive. Therefore, the changes you thought you were saving got
saved to a 'virtual' copy which evaporated when you closed it.

Always Save As first to create a real file wherever you want to store it &
then make your changes to that.

When you directly open an attachment (rather than saving to disk) it gets
opened as a temporary file. That file may still be somewhere on your hard
drive. Try searching in Windows with date restrictions and for a document
named *.doc.
