There is a big problem for me. I saved all my work in a folder in one partition and used the same name for folder in another partition. After some time I moved that folder from one partition to another and ignore warning message quickly. Later I came to know that previous documents of the folder had been replaced. I tried to undo changes but failed. I am much worried about it. Is there any way to recover replaced word document mac in the folder? Please give me any solution.

The document which is overwritten by a new folder also looses its address location to the new files. Doing undo sometimes saves you and reunites with the previous data. However, you tried doing undo but with no help. What you can do is download a data recovery Mac application on your OS X and install it to scan that partition. But keep this in mind, recovery of replaced files is not guaranteed with a recovery tool if the address location is completely overwritten. Still you can try as its is a hit-&-try method. Try Stellar Phoenix Mac data recovery or Recuva.
