How can a developer restore their previous checked-in (but not delivered) work after accepting incoming change?

Develper was coding a .xaml file and accepted incoming changes.  The changes overwrote their work and now its gone.   How can we get it back?

If the changes were not checked in, and it doesn't sound like they were then, you are stuck.  You could check at the operating system level to see if there a snapshot at that level that could capture those changes.

Thanks.  She says they were checked in, but not delivered.   Yet we can't find them.

Thanks, she was using the plugin for Visual Studio 2010.

A checked in change will not get over-written on accepting changes. It will remain visible in Pending Changes view as outgoing change set. In case of conflicting changes also, the change will not get overwritten automatically. An unresolved node with conflict icon will appear and force the user to resolve conflict.

Overwritten changes are stored in the .jazzShed in the root of the user's sandbox. If there were changes, and they were somehow overwritten, your user should be able to find them there.

If the changes were checked in, they should be visible from the Pending Changes view.
