I just wanted to thank you guys for saving my friends and I two days of work with OfficeSalvage! :-)
Here are a couple of videos of my friends celebrating that we found the file. The first is moments after, the second is my friend telling her Dad how happy she was that we recovered the file (it's in Spanish, but you can see the joy in her voice and face :-) ).
BTW, in case you wanted to know what happened. My friends opened a Word file from a USB drive and continued working on it for 2 days, saving frequently, but the drive was removed a while after opening the file. After finishing all the work and closing Word, the file was nowhere to be seen. Word was saving the file on the non-existant USB drive, it didn't say it couldn't save there or anything, it just saved normally (and actually didn't save at all!). I tried a million things, hidden files, Spotlight (including System Files), Caches, etc. NOTHING worked. Only OfficeSalvage got it back, it found a bunch of copies, all the revisions/times the file had been saved
