I know teenagers are supposed to have all the answers (at least for computer questions), but my son has a pretty serious computer problem. He was working with a program called Cooledit to put together a bunch of tracks of music, and he accidentally saved the file without some of the tracks from the previous version. He still has the individual tracks but he has no idea where they go. (Don't ask.)
Is there any way to recover the previous version of the file (same name) that was saved over? I told him not to do anything that would write to the hard drive in the meantime. Unfortunately, he had already shut down the computer.
Is there any hope here?
EDIT: In case it matters, he's running Win XP Home. I assume System Restore doesn't restore ordinary data files, right?
