    I accidentally deleted an important Worksheet in Excel and hit save without realizing it! I have "Autorecover" enabled but I looked in the Office Recovery folder and it's empty.. I do not have Time Machine disabled.. Am I screwed?

    If you don't have a backup, yes.

    So do have Time Machine on (enabled)?

    If you do, deleted files are saved in a hidden folder and you can restore them even if you have not recently run a TM backup. Just enter Time Machine's restore interface then look for the grey tab along the right side for the date/time you want to restore and you file should be there.
