Default print screen

I have a important question.... I took a very important screenshot, but i forgot to make a paste of it in eg. paint in time.. i didnt reboot comp or anything but it doesnt appear to be pastable anymore.. but i took it.. is it possible to obtain it.. "does the "copy" extract or get remembered in a temp folder etc..""

if its gone then i'm pretty sure you can't get it back unless you happend to open the clipboard viewer and save the item as a a file (i'm sure you'd remember doing something like that )
The clipboard, i believe, just stores stuff in RAM temporarily.

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"
