How to recover the original (Lab File - Week 3)?

Hi, I am working on Lab of Week 3 and using the Jupyter Notebook directly from the web bronswer. I believe I messed up the reference code and the system automatically saved over it. I didn’t save (download) the original file (C1_W3_Logistic_Regression.ipynb). Now, I am unable to come back to the original file.

I would like to start everything from scratch. How I should proceed to recover the original file. I have tried different options for refreshing and cleaning variables (using the Kernell option from the Menu panel) but only the variables are refreshed. The modifications I did on the default code are not refreshed, since the system saved over it.

Is it possible to recover the original file?

Thank you

Hi rmwkwok, thank you for referring to this tip. But as far as I could understand, In this case, it would work only if I had donwloaded the original files before. However, I messed up the original files and the system automatically oversaved it on my coursera “cloud” account.

Every learner has a copy by default - and that’s the one you have modified :wink:

Please just follow the steps :slight_smile: Let me know if there is a step that you cannot do.


I believe all you need are steps 6, 7, and 8 from the procedure in that thread.
The first few steps allow you to save your current work as renamed files, if you wish to.
