Sorry to be the one to bring the bad news, but...

 

Your file is dead, mate!

 

I can imagine that you worked on it on and on without having a backup.

I'm sorry for your loss.

 

If you're over 18, go out and buy a bottle of good scotch or bourbon to commemorate the event, to drown the sadness and to mark the day you have learnt a valuable lesson.

 

Cheers!
