I m using Microsoft Office 2000.

Recently, i have created one Word file. Later i found out that i've
mistakenly overwritten it. Is there any way for me to retrieve the original
version?

Hope somebody can help me... 10Q.

Hi Eid,

The deciding factor is not what software package you were using, rather what
Operating System you are using. If your document is on a network server
running Server 2003 (or SBS 2003), on a volume that has Volume Shadow Copies
enabled, then you can recover your old versions. If not then I am afraid you
are SOL, and hope you have a printed copy.

Good luck!

I think it would be a unlikely condition for him to be using that
particular OS. Therefore, I don't think that that is the deciding
factor. The deciding factor would be if he really did overwrite the
file, and if he kept any backup.

On a side note, the "microsoft.public.certification" seems to get a lot
of posts from complete computer newbies asking questions completely
off-topic of the group title. I'm not sure how or why that happens, but
it does.

I agree that it is unlikely, but it is worth asking. If he did not back it
up and he did overwrite it, and he does not have VSS working, then he is out
of luck.

With regards to your side note I agree, and was curious about it myself.
