Is there any chance that this file is/was stored in a Dropbox folder, or that your system uses Carbonite or some other automated backup?

Veggie,
I am not sure if anyone has already mentioned this awesome freebie called Everything but it is, hands down, my favorite search tool in Windows:



It is a small standalone app, fast, free and easy to use.
Make sure all your connected drives that you would like to include in the search, are selected from: TOOLS > OPTIONS > VOLUMES
Then just type a part of the file, no extension needed.

No need to click or press anything, it will immediately start searching and displaying results as it finds matching files of any kind!
