Microsoft Outlook Opened and Saved Attachments Missing?

I opened and saved that attached word document, spent hours making revisions only to find out that I didn't save it to a location, I just clicked save... Outlook stores these files and other temporary data in a place called the OLK folder. The location of the folder may vary based on the user logged in, the operating system and version of Outlook. I am using Outlook 2010, so to find the OLK folder, I opened up regedit and browsed to the registry path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security

Once there the OutlookSecureTempFolder key value is the path to your OLK folder. Substitute the version number for the outlook version you have in the registry path. It should be obvious once you get to the Office key what version you have, but just in case, I have included a table for your reference below.

Good luck!

Outlook 
Version Number
Outlook 97 8.0
Outlook 98 8.5
Outlook 2000 9.0
Outlook 2002/XP 10.0
Outlook 2003 11.0
Outlook 2007 12.0
Outlook 2010 14.0
