How can I recover my deleted Froogle list?
February 15, 2007 7:22 AM   Subscribe

How can I recover my deleted Froogle list? I once had a lengthy (20-30 items?) shopping list on Froogle, here. I pointed people to this list as recently as December and it was full then. It now appears the entire list is gone. The items for myself aren't that important (if I can't remember I want it, maybe I don't really need it), but I used the list to keep track of gift ideas for others, and I'd really like to recover those. I've searched for an older cache on the Wayback Machine, Google, and Yahoo, with no luck. And I can't find any means of contacting Google for help.

Froogle beta. Bad Froogle.

Although, that smacks of a session ID. Can you access it this way?:

deadfather, no, searching by email isn't any different. That ID is a list ID, not a session ID. The ID URL is the URL Froogle has always suggested sending to others.

And I assume you can't view it when logged in, either? When I log into Google and click on "My Account", there is a link to my Froogle shopping list. If that's not there, then it's likely gone.

Yes, I know how to login to Froogle, and I know it's gone. But I assume there's a copy somewhere, either a Google internal backup (which would require me contacting Google) or some 3rd party cache (e.g., those I listed), that would allow me to at least partially recover it.

MSN has a cache, but there's only 5 things on it.

Wait ... MSN is dumb.
