Last night I saved a .txt document (it had a name "***.txt" and everything) and when I realized that I didn't have the full information that I wanted on it, I copied the info which I thought was complete and modified the original file and saved with the same name.

Looking into the same file this morning, the .txt document had less info than the original! Apparently, I didn't get all the info I wanted when I did the modification.

There has to be a way to retrieve that original document, right?
