Windows 7: Lost file

Lost file

I accidently copied a file in the wrong direction and when asked if I wanted the fie replaced, replied yes, and the older file version replaced the latest version. When you "replace" a file, does the file space actually get written over, or does it likely remain intact and marked as a deleted file (that with the proper software can be undeleted)?
