I have a client that uses Peachtree 2002 rel9, he needed to open up the 2007 company .PTB file to make some adjustments and he actualy did a restore over his 2009 data, he does not have a backup of 09, the only backups he has are when he does the year closeout which he didnt do for 09 yet.  I am pretty sure what the answer is going to be but just wanted to double check before I told him.

So is there anyway to recover any 09 data from the .dat files

Thank you

I believe that the system uses the same file names. Outside of an OS-level recovery of the overwritten files (which is highly unlikely unless they shut down the server IMMEDIATELY thereafter, your expectation is correct: The data is gone.
