Restore your computer to a previous time when the data was present.

Look in the folder where the spreadsheet was saved. Set the folder to view all file types including extensions. You may get lucky and see backups with a tilde (~) in the almost-identical file name and/or ".tmp" as the file type. If they aren't there, try searching the C drive for files with a .tmp extension, and a second search for the tilde.

right click the file and go to properties... select the tab that says previous versions. depending how much memory you have allocated for restore, it may have more versions stored.
