Windows – How to recover Word document that was mistakenly replaced

microsoft wordmicrosoft-word-2007windows

I worked on a Word document and also saved the file on my flash drive. When it asked me to save, I pressed the Replace document option by mistake.

I can see the missing work under the Properties menu. Will I be able to recover the lost work?

It depends on the Operating System. If you're running a newer version of Windows, right clicking the file will reveal "previous versions," and you should be able to roll back the document to that. If you had track changes enabled, you could always restore there too.
