One of our Department members recently double clicked an attachment to a webmail. This opened the file in Microsoft Word, which the member then work on for several hours, finally closing Word. Word saved the file, where it had opened it from, which is a temporary storage space for files in Internet Explorer.
When our member attempted to re-open the Word file, Word did not know where to find it. She then attempted to re-open the attachment, which overwrote the file in the temporary storage.
Supported Psychiatry computers are configured to keep unique versions of changed files, twice a day, but that is only done with files within your user profile. The Internet Explorer temporary storage does not keep versions.
Files kept on P: and U: drives have full versioning, for 10 days, then less frequently.
If you open a file from outside sources, like web sites, please save them to P: or your computer’s hard drive, before you begin editing them. It can easily save you many hours of work
