Stupidly, yes! Kicking myself now. I changed computers recently and thought - well that's one file I don't need to back up.
Darn it!

Is that the only place that you have your tree Dorothy?



Dorothy Report 20 Jul 2008 15:45

Um - it's the GR tree that's no longer mine, not my pc data.

Hi Dorothy

Could you not restore your computer to any earlier date such as yesterday

I don't usually come here, so hi! Don't know if any of you can help me. I uploaded a GEDCOM family tree sent by a relative but didn't realise it would overwrite my own - aargh! years of painstaking input gone!
I've emailed the support people. Is there anything I can do myself to get back all the data I've lost?
