Lost .story file

I recently had a colleague email me a .story file. I opened it, edited it, saved it, and then published it into review 360. 

I now need to make new edits to the file but it is not on my computer anywhere. I checked the original save root in my temporary internet files and I can find the original unedited version but not my newly edited version.

Is there a way to retrieve the file from Review for editing?

Or does anyone know how to find my lost .story file?


Please help!

Hello Melanie and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Phil is correct, but there may still be a working version of your project in your temp files. Here's how to check: 

1) Open this folder in Windows Explorer: %appdata%\Articulate\Storyline 

2) Scan the contents of this folder for a file that starts with the name of your project. If you find one, copy it to your desktop. If you find more than one, copy the latest version to your desktop. 

3) Change the file extension of the copy on your desktop from *.tmp to *.story. 

4) Double-click the file to open it in Storyline.
