I inadvertently saved a file to the wrong folder. When I did that the new file replaced the document of the same name in the folder that was still active on my save button.

Is there anyway I can restore that file? Please advise

Thank you

It kind of depends. If the new file was larger and there wasn't enough contiguous space the data would have been saved on a different sector(s) of the hard drive. Otherwise it likely overrode the data. You can still try running a recovery tool such as Recuva, GetDataBack or testdisk.
