Access Database file "disappeared"

P: 1
Hello everyone!
My Access MDB file has "disappeared" from documents folder. I haven't deleted it, I have checked recycle bin, system restored, searched and so on. No luck!
Any suggestions on what else I could do to recover the file?

Hopefully you've been keeping regular backups of the Access database because they are prone to corruption. Other than that, you could try file recovery software.

Search your whole file system for the file name. That can take a while but who cares if you find an important file.

As Rabbit says, it's very important to keep backups of such important information. Not to do so is asking for trouble.

To resolve access the data, you will need to install the latest service pack of Windows Vista.
