Lost Dreamweaver Files

I was working in dreamweaver last night and found a misspelled word on 10 web pages.  All of the pages that I went in and corrected the misspelled word on, are now empty showing 0KB.

Does anyone know what I could have done to cause this, or anyway I could get the files back?

dcphilli I had the same problem once, it was because of bad Network Connection/DSL connection. if your Network/Internet Connecting drops while your are putting files on the Live Server DW will Delete/Remove the Code from your page.
if you dont have any backup then this means you lost your work.
BUT sometimes DW Deletes your files and you can create a new file with the SAME name and DW will bring back you code mysteriously.r

I'm trying to get my files restored from the last backup of the server, but not having much success.  The person that does that isn't in today.

I had DW set to save to server and locally at the same time, so I lost my backup.

I tried the create new file with same name trick on one of my files, and no luck, but thanks for the advice.

This is one reason i ALWAYS save local and then publish later.

I haven't the clue of how you could get them back

Or Use Visual Source Safe OR DW checkin/out feature.

Well, according to the rules, if the answer is "you can't do that" the points go to the first person to give me that answer.  So I guess the points go to adilkhan
