Lost files and inconsistent state of commits

Problem description:

  • I did not commit some code Thursday night (CET timezone).
  • I brought back up Replit this morning. I get a message that Replit is out of sync (no good reason since it’s a personal project)
  • The history of commits shows the last commit being 2 months ago, which does not match my Github history. The last commit was made on Thursday, from Replit.
  • In the code view I have 2 files that remained open (some that I left open on Thursday night are neither open, nor do they exist in the file system). The weird thing is that they contain some code that I did not commit on Thursday. In particular they point to files that I created after my last commit and that seem to have been lost.
  • I went to the web UI to check. I logged in. My lost files appeared for a brief instant before the UI displayed the exact same thing as the desktop app.

Expected behavior:
I should find my code and files the way they were when I left them even though I did not commit.

Actual behavior:
Inconsistent state as described above

Steps to reproduce: not sure how that can be reproduced

I kinda suspected but my problem remains while the issue is said to be resolved… Not sure if I should wait or take my losses and start from my last commit. Wrote to support.

Thanks for taking the time to answer @CoderElijah
