The mystery deepens. This is really weird.

When you open the submission wizard a new article is created in the database. It's an empty article. As you edit, a copy is auto-saved in a draft table. When you upload images those images are saved in a physical directory, and if you upload files over existing files then the latest copies are in a /Working directory inside the article's file's directory.

When you submit the system makes a version copy of the existing article and saves the article you submitted as the latest and greatest, and removes the auto-saved drafts. This removal of the previous draft only happens once you submit successfully.

A scenario we've seen, but which doesn't seem to apply to you, is that an article fails to load properly when you resume editing a draft and so when an auto-save occurs it wipes the previous draft. However, we put in place checks to stop this, and this has nothing to do with errors when saving.

The strangest thing, though, is that the files you uploaded should be still sitting there. It takes quite a concerted effort to remove files, yet I can't find any files in the directory for article 833931 at all. Not even the directory. That's truly bizarre.

Regardless, we're diving in again and will try and replicate your steps to see how this is even possible, at which point we'll fix the impossible bug.
