Generally, it is often impossible to recover the already overwritten data. However, the rest of your inaccessible data also has the chance to be retrieved at the help of a recovery tool.

Go to the folder you had it in, right click - choose properties - select "previous versions" tab. See if it is in there.

You could also try Recuva from Piriform.

(This is assuming windows 7/8)

As everyone says, the rewritten data can be recovered difficultly. But, you also can try to recover your data back for free at the aid of a free data recovery utility. It is really worth a shot.
You should learn a lesson to back up your important data as possible as you can.

I am sorry to tell you that the overwritten or replaced file is often irrecoverable.
