I do not know what shell you were using and how you accidentally
overwrote your file from the shell.  But if you were using bash and
overwrote using output redirection, you could write:

set -C

in your .bashrc.  That will only protect against accidental overwiting
using output redirection (using `>', `>&', and `<>'), however.
