    Accidentally I overwrote a much-loved Wallpaper. No idea where the picture came from, so unless I can somehow restore it from a Wallpaper history folder (is there such a thing?) it is lost for good. Any thoughts?

    You could try system restore?

    I could, but I am not keen. It is rather a drastic solution.

    It is but I fear your only choice really in getting the wallpaper back (short of paying a professional to retrieve it)
