Please HELP me. By accident I overwrote a large Word document (15 pages) by somehow replacing/ saving a GIF picture in it which has destroyed the contents. I have the Autoformat facility on but cannot retrieve the file. I have done searches throughout the C drive but to no avail. All I can find is the current corrupted document and the previous one which is still the corrupted document identified as ~$name. I assume this is the Autoformat version of the corrupted document. Any one know how I can get the original version back which was last saved correctly on 3rd Dec. I have Microsoft Office Word 2000 running on Vista Home Premium. As you might expect this is an important, urgent document for completion next Monday and I won't be able to write it again in the timescale. If anyone knows how to retrieve the original I will be more than pleased. Crying or Very sad

um you can try this:

scanreg/restore

In windows98se, you hold f8 when windows is restarted, go to command and type in scanreg/restore. Restore from another day and the file might come back.

If the corrupt file has been saved over the previous file, then you will not be able to retrieve the original.
