i am in dire, dire, dire need of help (and a pack of cigarettes, although i don't expect you to help with that).
(sigh). last night i spent several hours working on a document that i then proceeded to save something else over by mistake. what happened was that i typed up my document, saved it, then cleared it out and was planning on saving the new file under a different name. but i didn't. i just hit save. i didn't realize i'd done it until this morning - AFTER i'd already turned off my computer last night and booted it back up this morning.
i'm a dead duck if i don't recover this file. dead, i tell you. i read somewhere that a system recover might help. but i don't have my hard drive backed up anywhere, so i'm afraid of losing files. i haven't worked on anything else today, so i'm not worried about losing anything from today. i just don't want to lose any of my important files.
