    Is the computer a domain member? What sort of account are you logged in as? Can you restore it from your backup? Do you take volume shadow snapshots? Is it in the recycle bin?

    Most importantly, what have you already tried?

        I would strongly suggest that if files lost from desktops are a problem, you look into taking backups. Particularly since you described the file as a document, suggesting it is 'work' not a system file.

        What is the file?

            If you go into the folder the file was in and right click in empty space, do you have an option to 'Undo Delete'?

                  If you don't have a backup, chances are you won't be able to get it back, as I'm assuming you've already tried the methods Google suggests when you search for "windows xp undelete file" or similar.

                  Also, you can edit posts to add to them, you don't need to post twice in a row.

                    There may be any way to solve any issue.

                      If you don't take backups, chances are much higher that you'll lose files. What have you tried already?

                              If the file has been deleted and you have no backups and the user has been using the machine then i reckon your gonna be out of luck getting the file back.

                              You mentioned that the file was already open when you tried to move the file. WHo had the file opened???

                              How did you try to move the file?? Did you cut and paste or copy and paste??

                              Help us help you by giving some more details about what and where the file actually was, how you moved the file, etc, etc, etc
