Is there any way to retrieve an old version of an excel spreadsheet saved in Live Mesh? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Once I had finished making changes to an excel spreadsheet which I have saved on the live mesh, I saved the document but accidentally saved it with the name of another document, also in the live mesh. Therefore I have lost the spreadsheet I was working on as it has been written over with a different spreadsheet. Is there any way to retrieve a version of the same document from earlier in the day -  I don't have any other backup.

  • Live Mesh does not support previous versioning for files. Therefore, if you overwrote a file on the PC and it propagated to the other devices and Live Desktop, there is no way to retrieve the older file that was overwritten.
