So, I was transferring a bunch of files from a flash drive to my computer, saving Word documents as ODT documents as I went. One happened to have the same name as an existing document in another folder and instead of just saving the .doc as .odt, it overwrote the other file in the other folder as well. How can I get that file back??
I am running window's Vista, but only just learned about shadow copies today as I searched desperately for a way to recover my file, but I can't find any that date before 7/13/12 - when I bought this computer. The lost file is a LibreOffice document, and I have it set to autosave as I work, but I can't figure out how to undo the last modification (the overwrite) to get back the original version (what it was supposed to be)
I am kicking myself. I could care less about the file I was getting from the flash drive, I want back the file it accidentally overwrote!
A huge, massive thank you to anyone who can help!
