I had a situation where I went to delete a file on Notion (for iOS), but it opened instead, and when I went back to the main screen, I swiped left on that file...but then as it was deleting, that file went to the top of the page, and the file that moved to the position where that file was deleted...and now I cannot find that file anywhere or how to restore it.

As usual, this represents a cumulative three hours of work, saved on occasion throughout the process. If I have to recreate it all, okay...but there should be some kind of failsafe here, I'm hoping.

Okay. I found out how to do it, but it isn't straight forward.

To the Notion development team...an UNDO button should be on the front menu page. That would help.

The file is deleted, and does not show up as a hidden file or recently deleted file on iOS or the MacBook.

You have to go to iCloud.com, and go into the iCloud "app." There you click on your name, go to advanced, and then to recover lost files.

Scary. But I'm back not having lost a full evening of work. 100% my fault...but something that I am SURE will happen to others. This is how you save your bacon in this case...

This is a common problem. In fact, I have noticed many users are reporting this problem. The main reason behind the problem is generally due to updates. All you need to do is simply update your software and then see the problem got resolved or not. The second thing you can do just create a new account for iCloud. I had seen this resolving process on some of the sites and also seen on the Facebook page and tried on my iPad. It really works.

I have the same problem now. iCloud deleted and I don't know what to do. Thanks for the information, you need to try.
