Dear whoever may help to save my thesis:
I am what I considered an IT Pro but am currently a total dipshit. I had written a large portion of my thesis with Word 2003 on a Windows XP Pro Laptop. I had a previous version saved on a Linux Desktop system that was saved in Samba. I had left the old document open on the Linux Desktop with Open Office 2.0.
I had saved the document on the Samba drive but then saw it open on the desktop a few minutes later and out of habit clicked save and closed it. Now its the old useless version. Is there anyway I can get the old version back? Perhaps stored in a temp directory I don't know about or a copy in my Laptop RAM? Or am I SOL? Please god help, I will f'ing name my first born child after you if you can help me do this!!!!!!!!!!!!
