Is it possible to recover a replaced file?

Hi.

I have wrongly replaced a Microsoft Access file by another Access file. Is it possible to recover the old (replaced) Access file ?

I have looked at the trash, but as file wasn't deleted (but replaced by other file), it wasn't there.

Thanks.

unfortuantely there is not a way to so that
becuase you saed ove the file
even system restore wouldnt bring it back becuase you modified the original

you may be able to use an application like restoration to restore the deleted file.  It's worth a shot.  You can download it here:

he didnt DELETE the file
He over-wrote it with another version

Not sure if that would work
yes I understand that.  However, when windows replaces a file, I'm pretty sure it simply deletes the old copy and replaces it with the new one.  If that is the case, he still may be able to recover the old copy.

Thanks all of you for your answers.

plusone3055: I didn't know the version tab on files and folders on Windows Vista and 7, however the problem is that computer has Windows XP.
Windows XP didn't use this feature, does it?

What a pity it doesn't work on Windows XP. I made a test on Windows 7 and it works, but not on XP.
