Customer Question

One of my google gmail drafts has gone missing. It was a lengthy reply to a gmail I received, so I worked on it when possible yesterday, then auto-saved it. The last time I tried to get into it, I could not find it anywhere on my computer.
Please tell me how to retrieve this gmail draft. Thanks.

Do you need help finding the draft section of your gmail? if that is the case. just hover down on the more section on the left of your screen. and you should see a draft folder.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I have already clicked on my "draft" folder, but the draft I am looking for is not there. I also checked my "sent" mail, and my "Inbox", the draft did not show up. Pdlease advise. Tha k you.

Ohh ... If its not in the draft folder its most like not saved. There is one other possibility highly unlikely but did you write the email on your current computer or another computer? if its in another computer I would check that computer and see if its in there.
Sorry I don't think I can help you if its not in the draft section. I will opt-out and see if anyone else have any hints.
Expert:  Jay replied 5 years ago.
Please see if you can find it in another location. If you can't see it in drafts, then go to the "Labels" tab in the "Settings" and click the "Show" link next to the drafts label. If you do see the email, click on it, then 'Edit' and click either "send" or "Save Changes". Please let me know if you have any further questions or if you need further assistance. If somehow you accidently deleted it, then you will not be able to recover. Thanks, Jay
