Where are my old repos? (after upgrading)

I wasn't online here for a while. So I forgot my password. I clicked the password reset button and received an email saying:

"Your Bitbucket account is in the process of being upgraded to an Atlassian account."

I proceeded and now I can't see my old repos in my "upgraded account". !

Can anyone help me ?

Hi Burak,

Looks like instead of upgrading your previous account, you've just created a new one, that's why it's empty. I've checked your email address and I could see the Bitbucket account associated to it is only 4 hours old. 

Do you remember your previous username, or any other email address that could be attached to it?

Best regards,


Hi Ana,

Thanks for the tip. Yes turns out i was signed up with my other email address. I solved he problem. 

However, I still find it strange that the forgot password page does not say that the given email address does not belong to an account. Instead it behaves like i really forgot my password and creates a new user. The email I received was with the subject "we always forget"  :).

A tricky way to earn new users.
