Thank you Google Desktop Search!

Have you ever opened a Word file that you were using as a template, entered new text, and then saved it -- overwriting the original version that you dearly wanted to keep?  I did that today with an article about a presentation on which I had taken an hour of notes.  After I saved over it, there was no way in Word to retrieve the prior version.  I was distraught.

So I opened a browser, used the Google Desktop Search to find the document, and noticed that 12


versions of the article were cached (click on the screen shot to see it bigger).  I clicked on "cached" and clicked among the choices until I found the last version of the earlier article before I overwrote it.

I highlighted and copied the article into Word and saved it under a new name.  Whew! I just love technology that saves me from my own mistakes.
