Lost Progress



I have been spending days on this one project.

Atom stopped working for me. (My PC just needed to reboot; didn’t know it at first) So, I was wondering if it was just the file, or the whole app. So I opened the same file on another text editor. On this other text editor, it didn’t show all of the file. I didn’t know it at first, and I saved the project on that text editor.

I rebooted my PC, and now when I open my file on Atom, it only shows a portion for my file.

Anyways, I was wondering if there was a way to revert back to other saves. I worked hard on this project, and I don’t want it to go to waste.

Thank you,


You need a backup system in order to revert to previous versions of a file. Atom doesn’t do any more than any other program, and it definitely can’t undo changes made outside of it.
