HUGE MISTAKE

Without going into a lengthy explanation, I deleted ALL my comments (to ALL my posts) by mistake.  Thought I was deleting SPAM.  I am broken-hearted.  Does anyone know if there is any possibility of them being restored and how I would go about doing that?  Thank you so much.

Oh no!

Unfortunately, I don't know how to resurrect them, other than for us to manually type them all again. Which I would be willing to do, if someone could just remind me what I said..

CHERI said...

Thanks, ScoMan...I doubt you are the only one!!!! What a stupid thing I did! Live & learn, I guess.

I can't help, either. But keep blogging and you will get lots more.

Hi Cheri,

Since you are one of the blogs I follow I was
able to click onto Cheri's Chatter. I can see your posts going back to at least six months ago. I know that there is someone who will put peoples posts into book form and so I think maybe somehow she will know how to access your posts. If you go to Donna's blog
http://brynwoodneedleworks.blogspot.com/and
ask her she can give you the ladys contact info
and maybe she will know. I know Donna has this lady make books for her every 3 months or so to keep a record of her blog.
Mind you this is a stab in the dark...but since
I can see all your blogs going back in the last 6 months there may be a chance of retrieving them from there somehow??
I hope this is a help to you and I pray it will all work out!!!

Hugs,

Susan

So sorry sweetie!! That's why I haven't made any changes to my blog. I see so many folks that come up with new blog designs every now and then but I'm terrified I would just end up deleting my whole blog so I stay the way I am..... Hang in there - you'll have tons more in no time!

boy don't ask me.....this modern technology is way too smart for me;-)......lol

Cheri, I know what all the comments have said: "You're the greatest and we love you and keep on doing what you're doing with your blog, your life and family and"...well, anyway I guess it's like cleaning out a closet. Give it a few weeks and it will all be back to the way it was!

Theresa said...

Oh sweetie, I am so sorry and I don't have a clue at how to restore the comments. Let me think about it and if I can come up with a fix, I will let you know! BIG HUGS!

Ha ha ha! Now I don't feel so stupid about deleting my entire Facebook account, with dozens of photos and friends, and making it totally inaccessible for eternity...had to start all over again. Don't fret to much over this, Cherie, as it's the posts themselves that are the important thing, and they're intact. (I didn't even know it was possible to delete just the comments.)

Rose said...

sorry about the comments. I"m stupid can't help you computer wise. Just remember we like your blog and will follow. we've all have had something come up with the computer. rose

Cindy said...

Okay..if I am really bored this weekend with nothing to do..I will go back and comment on as many past post that i can..lol

Honey this sounds like something I would have done. There isn't a trash thingie to re-dump out? Just asking.

Well all I know..is keep writing..we will keep commenting..hey I just had a thought..when ya'll comment on mine it goes to my email..maybe there is a way through that.

Hugs..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

If you deleted my drivel, you didn't miss anything. It happens to all of us. I surely don't know how to retrive them, nor where comments go...wastebasket I guess, but then I've not been able to retrieve a lot there either. Like one blogger said, it may still be in your e-mail, because it is always in mine until I delete it from e-mail box. Even then it is in a trash folder, until I delete it again.

"I have good news and bad news"... SOMEWHERE in your computer is your comments... I know as a fact that "everything we do on our computer EVEN when you delete it or erase DOES NOT go away"... Hubby has shown me this many times when he will TRY to thoroughly empty files and photos and email that we delete... Sometimes it just scrambles it all up, you would be SO SURPRISED to know the stuff DIDN'T leave your computer AT ALL... Unfortunately I don't have a clue myself how to help, BUT before you let too much time go by CALL in a Computer Geek to do it for you... Sometimes they can bring your computer back in time to maybe a month ago(I'm not totally sure on this BUT it's worth a try)...
Good Luck,
Hugs to you, Donna
