I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no way that I know of to get it back. Once you over write something like that it is gone for good. It doesn't send it to the recycle bin, it just permanently deletes it. Sorry Sad

Confirmed. Sorry, there's probably no way to get it back, or only a very hard way. Note that this works for all software you use: overwriting a file means the old file is lost.
