Losing notebook

Hi Everyone,

I’m using the DataQuest Jupyter Notebook for the first guided mission “Profitable App profiles for the App Store and Google Play Markets”. Frequently, when logging back in, I’ll get a 404 error and lose all my data. (despite frequest saves).

Is anyone else getting this? Any ideas?

Thanks,
Erwin

Hi @EEE

This problem occurs when you try to rename the project by using spaces between words for example:
My First Project

Because of that, our platform couldn’t retrieve your file and it will display this error:

404: Not Found

You are requesting a page that does not exist!

Here is a way to reproduce this error:

How To Fix It?

  1. Click the Restore Icon 50%20PM
  2. Click on Restore Files

30%20PM

  1. Select Basics.Ipynb file 47%20PM
  2. Run this command in a code cell !ls to view the files
  3. Now run !mv "file name with spaces.ipynb" file_name_without_spaces.ipynb
  4. Refresh the page
  5. Select the renamed file 57%20PM

CloudApp

Hope this helps. :slightly_smiling_face:

Best,

You can retrieve your rename files by clicking your profile and clicking download tab and click the related course to download.

What @Sahil suggested is also valid because you are renaming the file.

Just to add on:

! is the operation to execute commands on the terminal.
mv is the command to rename/move a file/folder.
In our case, you are renaming back to the original file name in order reset the setting to default.
