well if you uploaded a file then surely it's wherever you uploaded it from in the first place?

If you have overwritten the existing file then you can be quite sure that you will not be able the original/previous version. But as already said in the previous posting: you still have the location where you uploaded from - hopefully you haven't deleted that as well.
