How to Get Saved Over File

I accidentally saved over an OmniOutliner file with a different OmniOutliner file. How can I recover the old version I saved over? When I check the “previous versions”, there are no versions available.

I am using OmniOutliner Pro 4.2.3 on Mac OS X Yosemite.

Help is greatly appreciated.

Do you have a time machine backup (or any other incremental backup) of your Mac? It may be possible to locate a version of the file before you overwrote it.

Keep in mind that you should NOT enter time machine with the OmniOutliner document open and in focus, otherwise you’ll enter the “Versions” interface. Enter Time Machine with a Finder window open to the directory that stores the file in question.

@mattbowlby Yikes, sorry to hear about this! I’ve done this myself, so I understand how harrowing it can feel. Are you syncing that OmniOutliner document with the Omni Sync Server? If so, send us an email, and we might be able to recover an older version of the document!
