recovering from file overwrite
February 1, 2006 12:11 PM Subscribe
Most PC mistakes are undoable -- I can undelete deleted files pretty reliably, and many applications have some kind of undo function. The one thing it seems I can't undo is accidentally saving one file on top of another.

I know you get a warning when you're asked for the filename, but I've blown past that and overwritten a valuable file often enough to make me think I'm not the only one. The question is, am I missing an obvious way to recover from this, or is there some kind of third party utility that can "undo" a file overwrite? Is the new Microsoft OS supposed to address this at all?
