Computer Nightmare - Backup Program

I worked about 30 hours on a PowerPoint presentation for a Creation/Evolution lecture. This morning I taught half of the material and this evening I went to translate one word to Czech that I noticed I didn't translate about Polystrate fossils. By the way, if you know the Czech word for "polystrate" please let me know. Something happened during my messing around with the slide and the powerpoint file became corrupted.

It is now 11:52pm and I teach tomorrow morning at 9am! So as I wait for a freeware program to recover some of the data I hope to get to bed soon.

I don't know what lesson to learn from this. Anyone know of a good backup program that may prevent something like this in the future?
