My Macbook Air mysteriously crashed while I was out (maybe a power spike). When I opened my Brain, it was missing the last 20 days. Support told me that if I hadn't changed anything, I might find the earlier version in _brain. I didn't.

I have automatic syncing turned on to the webbrain. It, too, is missing the 20 days. (Maybe it synced after losing the 20 days.)

Weirdest of all: I use Backblaze for automatic backup. It's worked flawlessly for over a year; I've had occasion to restore from it, and it works fine. It should have at least some intervening versions; but no, it, too, is missing the thoughts from those 20 days! (I create a new thought for each day.)

Any thoughts or ideas for exploration? I am really scratching my head--and feeling very upset at the loss of the data.

Is this some kind of MacBook Air restore like TimeMachine that might have done this?

Backblaze is a cloud-based backup service (unlimited volume for $5/month). It's like Time Machine in that it stores only deltas, while backing up continuously. I doubt Backblaze did anything to the data on my machine; nothing else seems to have been affected.

Glad to see you've returned to using TB, Joel.

Did you ever figure out what caused this data loss several years ago?

Also, what will be your data backup strategy going forward?
