I have a product called Vice Versa to do synchronization. it was sopposed to take an archive of outlook 2003 and add to a pst file on a G drive which is a network drive used for redundancy. something went wrong with the syncrhronization and the G drive overwrote the C drive file. Can this be undone to restore the C drive pst file. using xp pro as an operating system on the workstation.

Overwritten files can only be retrieved by:

1) backups
2) possibly recovery tools like RECUVA

At http://www.filehippo.com/download_recuva/ you can download this free utility and see if you can find the file you are looking for.  Windows marks blocks as empty but doesn't offically remove the contents until these blocks are overwritten.  Hopefully windows hasn't used these blocks as of yet, then this tool can recover the file in question.
--------------------------
Recuva (pronounced "recover") is a freeware Windows utility to restore files that have been accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied from the Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted by user error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bring back files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes and viruses!
