This is total user error. I accidentally closed a critical PowerPoint 2008 file and said "do not save" but should have saved. The prior save was 5+ hours ago. Can't find temp files. I have Apple Time Machine but don't know what to look for there either. It shows the same file save time. Final presentation is tomorrow morning (of course).

The changes would have been stored in memory, not as a temporary file. Therefore there is nothing to recover apart from the original file which will be in the state it was previous to the last save.
