I asked a question last night about having lost a domain controller without a backup, and trying to recover access to my user info.

But I can't find any record of the question at all, nor any indication that it has been moved or deleted.

What happened to it?

I don't see any new question on this list. Normally I should be able to see if you have any deleted or closed/migrated questions.

Looking your Stack Exchange profile I also don't see any question you might have asked in the past week.

My guess is that you might have asked it anonymously or that you accidentally logged in with a different OpenID, so its not attributed to this account.

Either way, I can't find your question. But you can try Googling it across the network to see if it pops up anywhere.

  • I also did a cross-IP check and while there are two users who use the same IP at times, they don't have that question on their account either.

    Apparently, it never got posted. I recovered the text from a TimeSnapper log, and went back to re-post it. Strangely, when I hit the "Ask Question" button, there was everything I had entered, just waiting to be posted.

    If you have a modern browser, it'll automatically save a draft of your question using HTML5 local storage, so that's probably why your text was still there.

  • I think actually it was rejected because the tag I used (domain-controller) didn't exist, but I didn't see the rejection message and thought it had been posted.
