I am working on a .docx file and check it out, use local drafts folder then discard checkout from the ribbon.

This causes this error "The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HREULT: 0x80070002)" however it is working fine if I select the document and discard checkout from the drop down menu.

I have tested with IE 7 and IE 8 with full control permission also added the main site is in trusted sites.

Have you tried updating SharePoint with the recent cumulative update released on October 2011? I hope this was a buggy situation in SharePoint ribbon control posted in earlier msdn forum posts-

Do not forget to run the configuration wizard after you have completed the cumulative updates.
