Use backuping. Blender has autosave function. You can find it in the settings http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob_to_Pro/Blender_Windowing_System#User_Preferences
. Check out the Auto Save and you can decide how many backups Blender makes and at which interval it makes them.

These backup files are saved as yourWork.blend1, yourWork.blend2, yourWorkblendPutNumberHere …

You can open them normally as any other .blend file.

you know… blender has global undo now

in object mode even… control+z is the shortcut
