I tried to open my application.py file in the IDE today and it is completely blank. All of the code is gone, both the distro code and the implementations I wrote for register, quote, buy and index. I'm not sure how this happened, is there a way to get it back or get a backup of it?

Thank you,

If you're lucky, the built-in time machine can help.

Open the file, click File -> Show File Revision History to toggle a slider that can warp you back in time.

  • OMG Thank you so much, I was able to scroll back to it and I've now made two copies in different folders on the IDE and saved it as a txt file locally.
