I was using printshop PhotoPro 2.0 to manage photos and accidently overwrote one of my originals with a modified version. I want to restore/recover the original version of the photo (.jpg file). I looked at system restore, but it says it does not change saved files...which is exactly what I want to do. I think I have had techie friends who have done things like this, but I am at a loss. Please let me know if i need to give more info.

So far as I know, unless the file was either:

a)backed up
b)stored on a Server running Windows Server 2003
c)duplicated earlier for some reason

then you're likely out of luck (I may be wrong - wait for others to reply as they may know a way)

With regard to c), think about where there may be another copy of the image. Did you upload it to a wbsite, or e-mail it to a friend? Also, Photopro may have cached the image when you opened it; run a search in C:\Documents and Settings for all image files. You may get lucky and find it there (be sure to enable searching hidden and system folders first, though)
