Okay, I was writing a very long piece of writing, and I saved it. Then, I used the same document for the next piece of writing, whichwas also long. I went to save it, and I saved OVER the old one! I was using Works Word Processor, and I NEED that document, very quickly.

Is there any way to get it?

Hello and Welcome to Geeks To Go

Your chances of getting you file back is not that great because as you said, you have saved it over the top of the old one.

There are programs that recover deleted files that have not been over writen, there is a chance that there is a copy of the document on your hard drive because it was saved it a differance palace and not over the top of the old one.

Here are a few links to get you started on you search for a file recovery program, I have never had to use one and can't find any one that recomends any one as the best.
