Data loss? Missing several days of work


Hi Glitch folks.

I have a project which has lost several days of work.

I don’t have any collaborators on that project and I did not rewind it. The most conspicuous loss is content in the index.html file where I had several examples which I demoed to the federated wiki community last Wednesday (2018-01-16).

Do your records have any indication of what happened?


There was also a file named wiki-roster.js … the source of the web components being demoed.


Hey @dobbs, it looks like your git repo thinks the last changes were on the 13th. We do have a number of backups since then that we could try restoring to see if one of them has the content you’re looking for, if you want to try that. Here’s a list of likely candidates, with their UTC backup times:

If you’d like to try let me know which one you’d like me to restore.


Please restore this one. :crossed_fingers:



Ok, that backup has been restored. Please review it and let me know if that’s suitable or if you’d like to check out another one.

Sorry for the inconvenience!


Thanks, Cori. This has what I wanted most. Thanks bunches for having backups and ways to restore them!
