HELP.. Lost 8 hours of work and can not open html

HELP.. Lost 8 hours of work and can not open html

Explorer | Level 3

I have no idea what happened. Was working on the same document enjoying the auto save features using my iPad.  I put 8 hours on Sat. 

Poop all gone. .. there is no history. There is only one document that is in html format, unreadable that is save around 10 may on Aug 21. It seems that somehow there was a disconnect between the paper I was working as a new version is created on its own. I would loved to be able to see if i can one it. 

 

Tried all the suggestion I lead about.  No lock .  I tried going to the public folder and " uploading" the html.. but there was no upload button ? Wonder if it was an older version.   I attached a screen shot of what I see.  Since the original paper has no record of  activity form Aug 21 where I worked on the document for 8 hours from my ipad. My only guess is that this is what was created.  

Please help me at least recover some of the information.  I put some much time in writing this work as I had a stroke of luck at the time.

When you save you save to the local device, it does not then upload back to Dropbox automatically - thats something you need to do. SO hopefully you may find it is still on the iPad and you can open it there and upload it back to Dropbox
