Over writen pst file

I have just joined a domain from a workgroup and forgot to copy the local profile on one of the systems.
When i first logged onto this machine it has overwritem the local profile with the network one.
I have managed to loose my origan pst email file i think it was overwriten.
I have searched for this file but the only one showing is one that was created when i logged onto the domain.
Is there any way of getting the origanal one back from where ever it is?

Hi jsharrock,

If you are sure to have overwritten the PST there is no way to retrieve the original even with most advanced recovery tools.

If you have super luck , try these

over writing a file makes it unrecoverable, the pointers in the file table dont change, if you deltete the file then just the pointer is removed - hence the file is recoverable, but the fact that you overwrote it means its gone - sorry
