    My boss has misplaced an important file related to my project

    I am working in a software company. Recently my boss asked me to show him one of the files related to my project. after a day, when I asked him to return it , he said that he had already given it back to me. I am sure he has misplaced the file as I am unable to find it anywhere. How to deal with such a situation?

    Hello,

    You should talk to him politely about the incident and see what happens. There
    must be an alternative copy of that file. So if you don't find the file look for the
    alternative one. every software company do maintain alternatives copies of file
    as backups. Don't get panic just look for the solution.

    Bye,

    Hello,

    Misplacing of an important file will really put you in trouble.Now you can ask your boss to search for it once again in his cabin or at his home.If he searches for it properly then you might find it.Meanwhile you also search your own workplace,home or in all possible places like car,drawers,etc.You can also ask your colleagues for help.If you dont find it,then you have to prepare it again from the saved data either in computer,cd or pendrive.

    Dear,
    It is quite natural, sometimes it happens that you forgot where you have kept the important things. Don't get panic, instead try to search it out.
    Ask your boss to go in flash back and think where he had kept the file.
    Be stressed out and search the file in case you didn't find it then ask your boss what to do as he is equally responsible for misplacing it.

    Wish that you will find the file soon.

    Hello Aspirant,

    It happens some time due to busy in life.It also happens due to not having good relation with the boss.Being subordinate,it is very difficult to ask for receiving while giving any any official record to boss.Now you have two ways.First search in your place well in home as well in office.You may also ask your colleagues to search in their respective places.Some times unknowingly goes to other hands.Also request your boss to search it well once again.

    If you get it,It is alright otherwise you will have to get it through save file in computer or in pen drive.If it is not possible to do so,you may get help from your colleagues.

    Have patience & deal it peacefully.

    Good luck.

    Hello,Do not worry, you must talk about the situation to your boss politely.Then, he will search for the file and if it is their you will get it back.Meanwhile you also search for it at your house and also at your work place in office.It is possible that you or your boss must have kept it somewhere and then you do not remember it now.And also search for a duplicate or hard copy of the file, you can retrieve your data from former.Think positively , you will surely find it.Good luck

    Go back to your boss if they say that you have already received it and ask for file again because this is not matter that your boss refuse you directly for that file and tell a lie to save his respect. Go to your boss and say that sir I am completely sure about that file that you did not give me that file back because I did not receive that file after giving you and that file is most important part of my project because if I loose that then I would be unable to complete that project on time that is why think about the importance of that file and details mentioned in that and give me that back and if you want to take some details or copy that for other projects then you may complete but this is the time when I have to complete my duty for betterment of the company so please give me that file

    Also say that if you have kept that file somewhere and forgot that where you have kept that so you should not worry because that file will not go anywhere from the office and we would find out that soon in the office but just tell the truth so I would proceed further in finding and try to memorize that you did not give me that file back because I met you after one day to take the file back and between this time, we did not meet each others for any work or task so how can you give me that file and if you have given that file to any other person for me then also you need to ask from them otherwise it will not be completed again and this will be your responsibility that I could not complete my work on time

    All the best
