    I seem to be suffering from senior-itis, here.

    A few weeks ago, I un-published a few hubs with low ratings, planning to revise them and bring them back later.

    It is now "later."  Several of these will be relatively easy.  The third one, not so much.

    It seems I have forgotten the name of the folder in which I stored the piece!  I also seem to have had a brain fart in not putting said folder inside my "Hub Pages" folder.

    It is floating around somewhere on my hard drive.......and I cannot do a search on something with a forgotten name.

    :::: Beating head against desk ::::

    Apart from hanging a chalk board around your neck for those moment to moment memories I would suggest you look in your 'recent documents' from the START button menu, and the drop downs of word etc.  If you find one you find them all big_smile Otherwise I normally find they have reverted to the default and are in the C: drive my docs folder.  You can tell how often this happens to me !!!   another way is to search in 'files' not for title but for content - use an odd phrase that you probably do remember - hope you find yourself soon, you can always ask nurse what your name is I find, she is normally helpful unless in a bad mood and then I wander around all day looking for new areas of France to conquer.

    I have to search for lost files all the time!  I'm almost an expert at it by now.

    What china man said - do a search by a word or phrase that is in the file.  If you use Windows, just open the Search function from the Start Menu; click Documents; click Use Advanced Search Options; then you can use a lot of different criteria for searching - including size of the file, time when it was created, modified, or accessed, and some word or phrase in the file. The key is to think of a good word or phrase that is not too common, but that would definitely be in the file.

    Good luck!

        You know the Reverend said to the lady , " You  really need to be thinking about the hereafter."

        She said, " I do Reverend, everywhere I go I think, now what am I here after."

        LOL lol

    Just a thought - but don't unpublished hubs just stay in the hubs box as UNPUBLISHED ?

    I would not know how to actually remove them thinking about it !

      yes, china man--the title is still there--it is the contents I removed.  Nothing left but an empty capsule.

    stop thinking about it
    go and do something incredibly boring, like ironing or hoovering so that the brain cells are resting- then the answer will come to you.

    My husband asked me when brain cells sstarted to deteriorate- he said about 25 years of age whioch means i  am in trouble having losst them for some 25 yrs and not realising it
