Months of work disappeared from spreadsheet

Months of work disappeared from spreadsheet

New member | Level 2

I went to edit my monthly budget spreadsheet and the last three months were gone. I edit the documents through google sheets which saved to the dropbox file. That's how i have been doing it for the past two months after getting a new tablet. Now all of a sudden the work is gone. It's not on my google drive or google sheets either. I did not delete anything. I only access it once a month and I make sure it says "saved" at the top. When i clicked recent activity it shows that I edited the spreadsheet last month, but the edits are not there. I tried a different laptop (Mac) and same thing. Any one else have this issue? or know how to solve it? there seems to be no customer support on these type of issues.

 

Thanks in advance.

Oof. Your experience is eeriely similar to mine, which I likewise have difficulty getting help with.

 

The only two things I have knowledge of that you could try is to see if there was any conflicting copies or to go back into your document's version history. Unfortunately, that isn't always a solid fix as I have noticed myself.
