Hi all, I am trying to recover a Microsoft project 2010 file that I spent around 4 hours work on, that was overwritten by an older version of the file. It happened on a school laptop therefore was saved on my USB. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks :)

Recovery Toolbox for Project is a project management tool created by Microsoft and included in the MS Office suite. This tool can repair corrupted Microsoft Project (MPP) files and recover their content, or recover these files altogether when they were lost, deleted or damaged because of various reasons.
