I can't find my drawio diagrams even though if I create a new one with the same name it exists.


I am extensively using embedded drawio diagrams. Yesterday I was creating one called "awgpipe" and I forgot to hit "publish" before closing my browser. 

Today when I loaded the confluence page again I don't see the diagram, so I thought maybe it's not embedded in the page but it's created as a file. 

Unfortunately when I do "embed existing diagram" and I look for its name I don't see anything:

However, if I create one with the same name, it exists.

So I would reeeeally like to find it again. How can I do?

I think that what happened is that the file was created but never published, so a temporary version was attached to the page, and indeed  I was able to recover the diagram looking at the attached files (from the published page -> attachements -> files. 

I noticed a file with a temporary name with awgpipe in it (third from the top):

Upon opening, I was presented with a string which was the entire xml of the drawio document. 

I then created awgpipe2 diagram and copied the string into it:

And I was able to recover the document!!

The copy paste of the raw XML didnt work for me unfortunately. 

But I downloaded the temp file, renamed the extension to .drawio and imported the file which worked for me.

Thanks for your help here. Helped me to get back my diagram.
