    This depends on the OS and the file system type used. FAT will do as you describe, resulting in immediate loss of the old data. Other OS and file systems work differently and there are chances to recover such files.

    You need to create restore points for that to work. Where should the OS know what is earlier and what is recent version? The default is to keep the recent set of data and discard everything else. Secondly, TS worked directly on the memory card with a FAT32 file system, your Win7 (I suspect) works with NTFS. Not the same, not the same functionality.
