I've made a huge error!!! Please read ...

As most of you know, I've been fiddling around with my blog, trying to make improvements.  Well, this morning I accidentally removed all the comments and my replies!  I'm so sorry.  Please don't leave me!!
If anybody has a idea if they can be found, please let me know!

    1. When I first went to that website I was excited because it looked like it would work to retrieve the comments; but when I followed the instructions, it appeared that the information wasn't for blogspot.com but an older version or something. So, then I tried using blogspot.com, but found that, because I'd labeled the comments "spam" they're gone forever! Thanks for the suggestion; boy have I learned a lesson. There were over a thousand comments in my spam folder. I checked on several and they were indeed spam; so I just checked off ALL and away they all went!!!

  2. I hope Roger's link will help - that would be a shame to lose those. If you back up your blog, you'll have everything from here on. I'm going to do a back up tomorrow. I don't want to lose all my posts, either, and I try to remember to back it all up every six months or less. It's been a while - thanks for reminding me. Good luck! :)

    1. Yes, this is the next best thing. I have my Lacie Rugged All-Terrain Hard Disk and will back up the whole blog and hard drive. I'm sick about losing everybody's comments.

  5. I was able to view some of your comments by fiddling with the wayback machine. http://archive.org/web/

  6. Unless you did a backup, I don't think you can recover them. I would not worry about it, just go and sin no more. --Dave ps: read this for seeing how to do a full backup: https://support.google.com/blogger/search?hl=en&query=backup

  8. So, I have my Lacie external hard drive plugged in but it took almost all night just to scan it's contents. Now I have to figure out how to back up again. Of course there're no instructions; I think I'll go to the website.

  9. That's too bad MP but those things happen. Good luck recovering the comments. I saw all the deletions and thought something unexpected had happened. I'm not going anywhere.

  10. Take a deep breath. It will be okay and your posts are really the important part! As a distraction, there is an RV Museum (free I believe) in Amarillo. http://www.rvmuseum.net/ It should make for an interesting visit.

  11. I know about the RV Museum and am planning to go there and also the Pharmacy Museum tomorrow. Yes, I do need to take a deep breath; it's not the end of the world!
