upgrade deletes normal.dot?

Hey,

We recently upgraded a user from windows 98 - win2000.

She is moaning that her autotext is now gone.

I know this information is saved in the normal.dot, but
when i did a search for normal.dot to move it to her
templates folder under documents and settings.

It was no where to be found?

does the windows 2000 upgrade delete this file?

Anybody have and advice they could offer? **besides
backing up before hand :p

Many thanks

alan

It was probably overwritten. I usually create a templates folder for the
user (on the home directory, ideally)...

Nope I searched the the c drive for normal.dot and no
matches found until you open up word and it re creates a
new one in the templates folder in doc + settings.
