How can I retrieve a spreadsheet I have saved over by accident

Was the spreadsheet created in MS Excel?
If so, then there may be an autorecover version available on your computer if the autosave feature was turned on.
Please confirm what version of MS Excel or spreadsheet software you were using so I can assist you further...

Ok, please look for previous autosaved versions of the document at:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok. Do I type exactly as the above?
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
You will need to put your own username in where it says "username"
Try looking for that location on your computer.
Or I can try to find it remotely for you if you prefer.
