    Default Retrieving saved files from the hard drive

    I know this question will be extremely basic to most of the users of this forum but....

    I wondered if there is a way of retrieving a file that has been overwritten
    by accident. My wife has spent the whole day working on something saving as she went but seems to have somehow ended up saving the work from the beginning of the day over the top of her edited text. When she was closing down a pop up asked her about saving a minimized file - which she agreed to but unfortunately the file was an earlier version with the same name. Can you access the files with a time reference and reinstate this somehow?

    Any help gratefully received.

    Not that I am aware of.
