revert-buffer tragedy

I just lost hours of work due to a combination of auto-revert-buffer and accidentally overwriting a file in my shell. I was working on foo.txt in an emacs buffer and accidentally overwrote it from a shell prompt while it was open in the buffer. When I went back to emacs, it reported that the buffer was reverted and when I tried to undo, it said no undo information was available. I've already checked in the ~/.backups folder but there is nothing useful there. Any ideas how I might be able to recover my work?
