You can use getdataback or easy recovery pro to get the "old version" of the xls file. They search your harddrive for deleted files and *might* be able to get your old file.

you could check your c:\windows\temp\ directory for previous version

or check:

or use  3rd party utilities like :

or if you at your work, arent there nightly backups? Otherwise I guess you have bad luck :(

good luck
