Illustrator File completely gone even though I saved

I genuinely have no idea what went wrong and I'm in a frenzied panic. No error happened. I saved and closed. No pop up nothing. I saved it. Did that anxious thing where you try to save twice and it's grayed out the second time. Not 10 minutes later did I figure I wanted to add something to the graphic and it's gone like nothing happened. I still have illustrator up from this session, but I'm completely clueless. 
I'm trying to figure out what happened or if I can get a save history transcript or something. Whatever back end data there is available. Anything helps.

If this is on Mac OS, do you perhaps have Time Machine running? In that case there is a chance to recover your file through Time Machine.

Can't seem to edit (or delete) this post but I figured out what happened. I saved over it with another file of the same name. I doubt there's a way to get to the version I want to keep, but if anyone can give some advice, it would be deeply appreciated.
