Workspace not saving my html files..

I am new here, but I have been working on creating a website. I am going through the html exercises, however, every time I re-open Treehouse and click on Workspaces, my "index.html" file cannot open even though I saved multiple times during the exercise. Any advice?

Is this after you have opened the appropriate workspace and clicked on the index.html in the file tree on the left of the workspace?

I had the same issues when I did the course a few weeks ago right after workspaces came out. I saved my work, then closed the space. When I came back my work would be gone. It happenedd 4-5 times throughout the course. Whenever it happened i would just download the project files for the video I was on and then just upload those to my workspace and use those. I dont think there is a way to get back those files that you lost.

The workspaces have some major glitches it seems. I find that using Chrome seems to cut down on the problems though

Oh, wow, I'm really sorry. We have had some reports of this, and we are working on rolling out fixes that should prevent this type of thing from happening. We will be upgrading our servers shortly and rolling out some other networking improvements that will, in our testing, eliminate these types of issues, and improve the overall performance.

Everything was working perfectly fine and then it happened again today. I'll try to see if using the project files will help me with continuing along. Thanks!
