    Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask. Say if I have a Word or BMP document that I saved once, and then modified it and saved it again (so the old version is overwritten) but now I want the old version back. Is there any Vista compatible program that allows me to do that? I have programs that can restore deleted files, but not overwritten files. Thank you very much and keep up the good job!

    Browse to the file, right click it, then choose 'restore previous versions'. Vista has a functionanlity built in to restore old versions of a file.

    I believe the feature to "Restore Previous Versions" is only available if you're running Windows Vista Ultimate or Business editions, because I do not have it in my Vista Home Premium and I had occasion to research that feature.
