Just now, I was working on a draft on outlook.com. I saved the draft and then started composing a new email. I finished sending the email and then went back into my Drafts to look at the draft I was previously working on. It has disappeared and is not to be found in any of the other folders either. How do I recover it?

FYI: I went back to Hotmail just to check and it is not there either.

    If it's gone, it's gone. You don't get to sift through servers' temp files. – dnbrv Aug 23 '12 at 21:44
  • Thanks. I asked anyway because Outlook hasn't been around long and I was wondering if it was some kind of a bug or something. – karancan Aug 24 '12 at 13:20

Turns out, there is nothing to be done in such a situation.

This is the only time I've had an issue with a lost draft and this happened at a time when Outlook.com had just launched. All this to say that even the reason for why the draft suddenly disappeared will remain unknown.
