What you say doesn't sound correct. One of the strengths of SVN is that
"changed" files never get overwritten. (Unless there has been a recent
cockup in SVN) =-O
So an Update should not have been the process responsible for
overwriting your WC changes.

A very useful tool to have running in a development environment is
Executive Software's "Undelete".
It only has to save your bacon once or twice in it's lifetime to be
worth the low price.
