Need to recover the original file from 4-5 years ago

Hi,
I need to know if there is any possible way to get the original version of a extremely important document that has been edited without permission sometime in early 2014.

 

This is so important that it might be presented as evidence in a court case.

Re: Need to recover the original file from 4-5 years ago

No I'm so sorry.

Unless you were a paying customer *at that time* and held the Pack-Rat extension AND kept holding it all of the time AND elected to keep it when it changed to a years worth of recovery a few years ago you wont be able to recover it.

Paying users now can recover now for up to 365 days depending upon their account. Free users are limited to 30 days.

Even paying wont allow you to recover it.
