Outlook Temp folder


OK, so you have a client who opens an attachment in Outlook. They work on the document all day and are diligent in clicking save all through the day. They close Outlook and the next day they go to find the document they worked on, only to find that their document has no changes! At this point they scream and curse and kick things.

This is also where you can charge in with your heroic solution to their problem!

The files are kept in c:\Documents and Settings\username goes here\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\ in a folder something like OLK12 and in there are all the versions you could want.

Now is the time to bring up the topic of a raise 🙂

EDIT: Found this page that might let you narrow down exactly what the folder is called for your version of Outlook…
