Help - I'm working with Microsoft Works with their basic word-processing programme. At the start of my session I saved the report i am writing on as a word doc (.doc), but soon gave this up as the default for works is to save as a .wps file and I could not be botherd to change the option everytime. After a hard days work, I returned this mornign and accidentally opened up the .doc file rather than the .wps file with the same name. Of course, when I did my first save, I unthinkingly clicked yes when it asked if I wanted to replace the existing file - by which it meant the .wps one I had been workign on all day. Is there any way of recovering the earlier version that I saved last night? Help please!!!!

Thanks a lot -

Stephen

If you didn't save it in My Documents, do a System Restore.
If you did save it in My Documents, you've lost it I'm afraid.
