I'm assuming that you navigated to the correct directory and eye-balled it
to make sure the file was actually gone, not just hiding under a temp name
or something?

This is from MS:

"Process to save a file
Excel follows these steps when it saves a file:
Excel creates a randomly named temporary file (for example, Cedd4100 without a file name extension) in the destination folder that you specified in the Save As dialog box. The whole workbook is written to the temporary file.
If changes are being saved to an existing file, Excel deletes the original file.
Excel renames the temporary file. Excel gives the temporary file the file name that you specified (such as Book1.xls) in the Save As dialog box."

See here for some more info:

Not sure if any of this is applicable to Win 10.

the file was not in the original directory, nor was there any temp files waiting to be recovered. it happened on two entirely different excel spreadsheets, both of which are used periodically, monthly at worst, for a few years each.

when saving the spreadsheet, an error would pop up and saying the file does not exist
in the original location, then excel itself hangs and dies. This has happened even after a prior save in the same session.

What version of Excel are you using?
What version of Excel are the Files being saved as?

Could possibly be a mix up when trying to save an old version file
from a newer version of Excel.

Best I can offer is to Uninstall Office
get all the latest Win 10 updates
Reinstall Office and see what happens.
