I hope your file is back to "normal". Your story will help Mac users appreciate 
Time Machine. Once it's set up, it automagically keeps hourly backups for the 
past 24 hours,daily backups for the past month, and weekly backups for 
everything older than one month. Makes it simple to go back to a recent copy of 
a file you may have inadvertently messed up...
