how do I bring up the document recovery pane up manually

hi

I was working on a powerpoint file and did not save the changes, system
crashed and when I reopened powerpoint, it showed me the files I was working
on. Unfortunately I clicked cancel. (as file showed when it was last saved
and since in my documents I had the version as of the time I saved it,
without changes, I stupidly clicked cancel)

So I only have the old version of the file.

How do I display the pane that shows me the files, or somehow find other
versions of the file that microsoft has saved.

Thanks

Shriram

Hi

Have you tried closing & re-opening powerpoint? AFAIK there is no way to
open that taskpane manually and it automatically deletes those auto-recover
files when you say you don't want them. However, have a look here to see if
you can locate & open the auto-recover file on your PC:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/wo...831601033.aspx (this is for Word
but the theory is the same)

If you are on Vista you can recover old saved files, see here:

Sorry :-(

You might be able to search for the temp file the pane created. Try ppt*.tmp
as the search string. If you find a likely file open it in PowerPoint
