shut down, and I would like to know where Notetab keeps its files that
are unsaved, in windows Vista. I have been able to reconstruct files in
teh past, but it would be easier to know where temp files are stored.

- Along the same lines it's been my experience with V5 that backups do
not happen during a search disk replace operation either. Unless the
"Make Backups" option is also ticked in the files section of options.
So either some of us are missing something here about automatic
backups, or a whoozit is out of place in the whatzit somewhere.

If I create a file in Notetab (so it gets named as say- NoName.txt but
hasn't yet been saved) and select option [View in browser] the address
that shows in the browser will be something like:
* file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Alec/efo~1.html or
if I save the file as (say)
* C:\Temp\NoName03.txt and then make some changes to it and again
view in browser the address bar reads:
so moral is ... look for files with name efo~ followed by a number in
the folder they were last saved in or the "default" save target whatever
that is, if it has never been saved. AFAICT, though this "backup" only
gets made whenever Notetab needs to use interim results elsewhere NOT
forinstance on every keystroke you make while editing the file within
