Just need to share/VENT– spent 2 hours researching and inputting addresses for save the dates/invitations into my guest list on excel and LOST EVERYTHING!!!
Not showing up in recent documents, temp files, etc.
I was working off a download from my gmail and thought I was saving it but it’s NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!!!!
🙁 Learn from me, save as… then save again and again and again with backups!

you may be able to get this back! bumping so technical bees can help. I have found seemingly lost documents before, you just have to know where to look. I googled and found some things before, on message boards and things. Bump!

look to see where your browser keeps temp files. it could be there. google for your browser and location of temp files.

Here is a trick that helps me sometimes.
Go to your email and open the file you were working off of (the old not updated one obviously).
Get that file open and hit file, save as
The default location where this file defaults to “save as” might be the same place where you were hitting save to.
If that doesn’t make sense let me know.

Ah! So sorry! I hope you can find it again! Or at least get the addresses easily again!!!

Oh man, so sorry that happened! That’s stressful stuff. I’d ask your peeps to divide and conquer the addresses again ASAP. To avoid further stress.

Gasp! I hope you can find it. I only have the guest list prepared, not one with addresses yet, but I couldn’t imagine losing that.

I’m sorry you lost your list. Also, don’t forget to back up your hard drive and save your stuff in as many places as possible!

Create the new one in Google docs… trust me, I had mine on my laptop and someone broke into our office and stole 6 laptops… including mine!! The DAY before I was sending invitations out. I created the new one in Google docs (in excel), which saves everything.

I feel your pain. My laptop was stolen recently and I lost almost all of my wedding planning stuff. Thank God, though, I had been saving the addresses on TheKnot. I hope you manage to recover the file!

Thanks for the support BEES!!! I’m pretty tech savvy and tried all the above mentioned tricks and nothing works hence the vent! 🙁
Well.. I sucked it up and re-did it all– technology is a bitch and a savour! It lost everything but then with whitepages.com it made the recovery not so bad!
Thanks for all the love!!
