You cannot recover an overwritten file. Do you have a backup copy?

Hello Phoenix77, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Check to see if you may have a previous version of the file available to restore.

What file have you over written it saves the data in one file but if you do a backup it's another file can't you import data from bank most let you export data which you can use

Many thanks for all the replies. I've tried everything with no luck. A hard lesson to learn but I'll be extra careful in future

Microsoft Money discontinued
Now that Microsoft Money has been discontinued does anyone know of a good program to replace it? I am not very fond of Quicken and don't like the $59 price tag that goes with it.
