Last night I left 3 Atom (version 187) windows opened to 4 projects:
One window to my Daily/* set of often used files
One window to my project’s repo
One window with two projects, earlier versions of my repo
This morning I noticed my project failing and found that these four folders were gone. Atom was open but IIRC, odd names that may be Dropbox cache files/folders.
Dropbox’s “events” list did indeed show all the deletions.
All went well, I recovered via Time Machine the two major folders and can reconstruct the two earlier versions of my repo.
I’m mainly reporting this in case others have similar problems.
Does anyone have any idea what may have happened? I’ve been doing this (keeping editors open for extended periods) forever it seems.
