I was using a sandisk 80G external drive. I was working on a word document saved on it. I saved many times while working on the document.
When I tried to close it, I was prompted as asked if I wished to save the document before closing. I clicked on yes and the prompt went away but the document would not close. I was not able to close the document with the stick in and I eventually removed the stick. The document still would not close. I eventually kept trying and it eventually closed. Before closing and removing the stick, I saved the file to the desktop. Now, i can't open the desktop. It shows on the icon that there is 27 KB of information. When I click on it, the document attempts to open in word, but then an error message comes up that says "The document name or path is not valid. Try these suggestions. 1. Check the file permissions for the document or drive. 2. Use the file open dialog box to locate the document. No document is there when I to to file and open. Is the document somewhere on my computer or the stick? Is there a recovery program out there? Please help.
