Announcing the new Datavyu v1.3.6 with enhanced features and transcription support!

I'm an idiot and accidentally saved over a Datavyu opf file that was saved to a Desktop and not properly backed up. Is there any way to retrieve the old file?

P.S. The files were saved on a computer running Snow Leopard, meaning we also were using Datavy 1.2 and not the latest version.

Datavyu does not save previous files. It remembers recently opened files but it cannot recover the files if they were deleted. I would look into whether your computer has a backup function.

Thanks for the prompt reply, Vicky!

(As I know the software is continuously being updated, is this appropriate place to request new features? It would be great to have Microsoft Office-esque protections that would make it possible to revert to previously saved versions of files and some sort of "auto-save" or "auto-back-up" feature. Obviously it's best practice and not hard to save regularly and properly back-up files, but humans make mistakes, computers crash, etc.)

We are continually working on Datavyu to ensure that it functions properly for our users. We aren't really looking to add new features right now but this is something that we will keep in mind if we do have an opportunity to build new functionality.
