My maps not saving, any way to recover? 0 Recommended Answers 0 Relevant Answers 27 Replies 39 Upvotes

Yesterday I was working in My Maps making changes, after a few hours the map glitched and said that an error occurred, so I refreshed the page. Unfortunately all of the changes I had made were not saved. I decided it was just a glitch so I took the time to make all of the changes again. Today when I opened up My Maps all of my changes were not saved, for the second time. Wondering what to do now and if there is any way to recover these changes?

Hi 123_3mn,
 
Welcome to the Google Maps community.
 
I am afraid that there is no way to recover anything that was not saved.
 
For peace of mind sake, if you are working on a large project, I would recommend regularly checking in the top left to see if it is saved - "All changes saved in Drive". If you do not see this, or it just continually says "Saving", then something has probably gone wrong, I would recommend checking your internet connection and then reloading the page if it still does not save - you will lose what you have done since the last save, but you will not waste any more time creating work that might not save.

I am having the same issue. I worked all day yesterday, and in top left corner I saw it regularly updated to "All changes saved in drive". Internet connection was good. But at end of the day, went to add a new layer and it began "saving". And never finished.  I still have that window open b/c I'm hoping not to lose all of yesterday's work. Spent all night with the spinning wheel "saving". If I load the map in a new window or on my phone, none of the new work has loaded. Please tell me there is a way to recover the work. I downloaded the entire map and all layers as kmz and kml files to see if I could create a new map importing them, and I get the "unable to parse" message. This is so frustrating b/c it feels like a bug on google maps end and there's nothing more frustrating than losing 10 hours of work on a Sunday....hoping for the best.

Hi guys, having the same issue.

A single marker can be placed and the page refreshed, but any more than that and we get the 'can't save' message. Refresh the page and all but the first marker is lost.

Please help - !

I've been experiencing exactly the same thing and it's happened about 3-4 times now. Like the other posters, i'm easily spending hours documenting stuff on there and its gone with a refresh. This is so frustrating.

Same problem here - luckily only lost 3 hours of work!  Feel for those of you who have lost more.  Can't be a difficult bug to fix surely?  Won't be using Google maps again to create layers - I just don't have the time for this!!
