I've been working on a draft post in Blogger for the last few weeks. I was just finishing it, and decided to do a spell check. Halfway through the spell check (in Chrome) I used CTRL+Z to undo a spelling change and my entire post disappeared.

I then went back to the post listings page and re-opened the post, only to find it was empty. I am utterly mortified, as this has been something I've put a lot of work into.

I've tried using Chrome's history to view the deleted content, but it doesn't work.

I have viewed this post countless times on my computer, surely it must be stored somewhere as html/text that I can recover?

Well, I sympathise. After the undo, did you try to redo? – sblair Feb 12 '13 at 2:30
Yes, redo was the first thing i tried. From what ive read elsewhere it would appear that autosave kicked in straight after my text dissapeared, which has happened to a few others. Dissapointing to see this being closed - exactly where do you ask questions that relate to advanced topics on computer software products such as browsers? – Baldy Feb 12 '13 at 8:49
If your question was solely about Blogger functionality, it'd belong on, but since this question actually seems to relate to browser functionality, it's on-topic here. My guess is that all those who voted to close this simply read the title you specified and ignored the actual content. sblair's edit makes the title look much more on topic now, but still IMO this should not have been closed as off topic. – Karan Feb 12 '13 at 14:56
