    I was writing a hub when all of a sudden internet explorer shut down.  I noticed as I was writing this little auto-save pop up come up.  Can I recover my work??  When I restored my last session everything I typed was gone.  sad

      Hello mrsbudryzer:

          Don't worry, this has also happened to me, on a few separate occasions. My internet explored either shut down or the page had froze up on me. Your material isn't totally lost. Go to the edit window, where you had been typing your work. Near the bottom of the window, you will see  an area where you can click on-"save draft" Clicking on this will bring up the last section of words that you had typed. Whether it was two or twenty minutes ago. From that point on you can continue typing text where you left off

            If you read the whole thread, you will be delighted to see that the problem had been solved several hours before you first posted; as per Cagsil's suggestion, which was similar to yours.

                I always do, so hadn't considered what a big difference that might make; thanks for pointing it out.

                  I always do too. Drives me crazy when someone comes in after me and says exactly what I just said. I never hit the reply button to answer the original question asked if I am the first answerer so it wouldn't show up in threaded. I wish they would just get rid of that threaded option all together...

              Thanks for the feedback in reference to this post. I totally overlooked Cagsil's comment made before mine.

    Welcome to Hubpages! smile

    The hub you were working on, is it in your unpublished section?

    If so, then edit the hub and you might be able to recover the written text in the text capsule you were working on at the time. Each text capsule auto-save feature should have made a copy of what you had written.

    There should be an option for you to recover the text, if the text is not there and it should be(I think) is at the bottom of the text capsule.

    Other than that- email Staff and see what's what and they can tell you.

    Thank you Cagsil!!!  For the welcome and the help.  It worked!! I only lost a little of what I typed, but that's better than losing it all.  Thanks again!  smile

    Welcome and always, always best to type first into a word doc like wordpad and then copy and paste work over to the capsules.

    Off the subject a little, but if you are using IE as a browser it is probably best to switch to FireFox or Chrome.  IE is well known to have problems at HP and you are almost certain to run up against some of them sooner or later.

    Yes. I will be practicing the copy and paste method moving forward. Thanks for the advice.

    I took a look at your hubs, the ebook one is not in compliance with the TOS, you can no longer start the hub with ads from ebay, amazon, etc. The other one on eternal life needs the picture moved from the top to the second capsule for better ad placement. Just a couple of suggestions before you get in to deep and your hub gets taken down or flagged for substandard work.

      Yes, fortunately, but HubPages' backup system could be improved.
