Recovering Deleted File

I have a small flash drive that I use for keeping an important document that I need when I travel. My husband was trying to use this flash drive to move music files from our desktop computer to our laptop and now my important file is missing. Is there any way to recover this file?
He says he copied music from the my music folder on our desktop (Windows XP) and pasted it onto the flash drive. He then moved the flash drive to the laptop and selected all files and cut and pasted them into the music folder on the laptop (Windows 7 Starter). However, it did not paste my excel spreadsheet but it did paste all the music files. When he realized that my file was missing he moved all the music files back onto the flash drive but I think in doing this he just overwrote on top of my deleted file making it unable to be recovered.
I tried using recuva but it will not bring up the file that I need although it brings up files from years ago.
Is there any other programs that would recover this file if recuva didn't...or does anyone have any ideas on how else to recover this file. It is very important.
