This way costs nothing and needs no add ons. Just go to word or excel, and on the recent files list, click one of the missing files from the list, and voila!! it is back. Now navigate around your files in the open or save as prompts, and rescue them to a safe location. I think the trick here is that the program remembers the pointer that has been removed (hence you not being able to see the files).
