I created a powerpoint presentation (ppA) ~ 2weeks ago & subsequently used as a format to create a new presentation (ppB). In the process, I accidentally saved ppB as ppA before renaming it properly to ppB. Is there anyway to find the original ppA without losing any recently created files?

Do you have windows vista?
If you do you may be able to retreive the files by right clicking the folder and selecting previous versions.
Once in previous versions find a folder dated to before the accident happened and it should be there.
If the .ppb file opens just fine in PowerPoint then you can just select file, save as, select the right type and save a new copy with the correct type.
Also .PPA is the wrong type for PowerPoint, .PPA is a WordPerfect file. You want .PPT for the PowerPoint 97-2003 format and .PPTX for the PowerPoint 2007 format.
