Accidental overwritten Excel File
Posted on 2004-04-02
I have a Windows XP LAN with 5 machines, that all view a todo list (in excel), held on one of the machines. The dumbass that I am, I overwrote the file with a 2 month old backup, instead of overwriting the backup with the current file (oops!!!). As far as I can see, I've lost the todo list, unless it's stored temporally on one of the 4 machines accessing it (some of which haven't access the now overwritten file), and so should have an excel temp file or something. I've had a look in "C:\ Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft" for df*.tmp files but found nothing useful.
Thanks in advance for any help
