Need Help to recover a lost SAS project

Hello! I am new to this group and in serious trouble .

Accidently i saved a SAS project over another EG project :-(

I use SAS EG 5.1 and have been trying to recover my original project since morning. I tried to recover it from %TEMP% but unfortunately in temp i have a very old copy saved (last week's) there is a folder for yesterday but it is empty with no rcv file.

I need to recover the latest file atleast from yesterday to be able to save my week's effort.

Is there a way to do that? Please suggest!!!
Thank You!

Do you have anything that backs up your computer's data files daily? if so look into restoring from the backup. If not this is likely to be a very difficult project.

Re: Need Help to recover a lost SAS project

It appears you have already checked out the auto-recovery area of EG. As that hasn't helped and where you are saving projects, like your PC local drive is not being backed up then there is very little you can do.

That's why you should always save your permanent SAS projects on storage that is backed up, like a network drive. In most organisations local PC drives are not backed up.
