A student deleted a slide from a shared file. It doesn't show up in "restore." Any way to restore? 0 Recommended Answers 3 Replies 4 Upvotes

I have a slide file that students contribute to, five-six students contributing on each slide. Somehow one student deleted one of the slides, losing other students' work along with their own. I didn't realize this until a saw there were only four pages, instead of the five I had created (while they were still working).

When I noticed it, I asked students if they had seen a page disappear, and if so to try "Undo." None of them were able to restore the slide.

Later I looked at the Version history, but only saw one when the student first started working on it, and the final version.

Is there any way to find this missing slide? I think this may be impossible. If it is, can anyone recommend another way of creating a document that all students can work on?

Thanks,

Lee

Here's an example of one of the slides:

Hello!
How did you post the slides to begin with? Was it set as an assignment where everyone could work on it or did you just post a comment in the stream with a link?

Usually when set as an assignment - the original will be in your 'template' folder and you should be able to restore it from there. If you just posted as a comment then you'll have to play the game of 'go to that kids computer and check version history' until you get the right one if you cannot see any version history that reflects the deletion of the specific slide.

Thanks for your replies. Yes, it may be better located in the Editor Community. 

The situation is that I have students working on a shared slideshow where several students work in different text boxes on the same slide, and students are deleting the entire slide. Thus, all the work other students have done on that slide is lost.

It happened again today, and I had to quickly make a form where they could record their observations, but this didn't produce real-time sharing of ideas.

Maybe a share Google Doc would be better, because there I can see the actions each student took and 'catch' the student who deletes info.
