I forgot to save my return before I filed

I filed and printed but forgot to save my return. I went back to Turbotax and it is offering to start a new return but there is nothing left of my original. I need to have this downloaded so i can have a non-hardcopy on my computer. What do i do?

Because it was saved on your computer, you will need to perform a search for a tax data file. If you are unable to locate the tax data file, you can still order a tax transcript from the IRS. Please follow the directions below to locate the data file on your Mac. https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3302441
