Lost 3 months of data entry when I closed my file Last Friday

Occasional Visitor

I regularly track some of my work in an excel file. I closed excel to restart my computer for updates at the end of last week.


When I opened the file again, all of my data I have entered from roughly 3 months ago till now was missing. 


Looked in all of the obvious places for autosave but there is nothing for this particular file in there. 


The details of the specific file on my hard drive say it was last modified 3 months ago as well which seems odd because I use it daily.


At the same time of closing this file I had a few other excel files open. All of the files prompted me to save before closing which I said yes to. The other files had backups but not this particular file.


Any chance I'll be able to recover this lost data?
