everything that I have been working on for three weeks disappeared.

I have been working on a project on R studio cloud for three weeks and have saved my work every time. Today I logged on and everything that I have done except for the work that I derived from someone else's project had disappeared. The data and the code disappeared. Please help!

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your RStudio Cloud project. Can you tell me the project ID that you're working on? Also what files are missing from what directories. Thank you.


The main directory is missing codes and data after what is already there.

I am able to see a number of files in the /cloud/project directory:

Are there files that should be there but are missing? Can you take a screenshot and attach it to this message?

The one that is missing the codes is Daneshgar.Rmd

Can you please attach a screenshot? I looked at that file, and it appears to have contents in it.

That is the file there are some contents in there but there were also about 50 code chunks after that that are now missing. What would you like a screenshot of?

I can see a number of chunks in that file, I can also see that the file was last saved on Nov 5th. When were the missing chunks added to the file, and when did you notice they were missing?

I had been working on it since I created the file
on October 22 and from what’s there now
there was more codes that I had saved, but when I went on yesterday november 5, everything I had worked on after what is already there had disappeared.

So if I understand correctly, you're saying that the file has been reverted back to its original contents from 3 weeks ago?

Yes that is correct.

Do you know if its just the one file, or was more than one file affected?

That’s the only file. All the excel sheets had been uploaded into the environment and they all were not there anymore either.
