Did you know you can restore backed-up versions of your iGoogle page? A few weeks ago the Google servers had the hiccups and appeared to have wiped everything off my iGoogle page. But I discovered that you can restore automatically-saved backups very simply. I thought it might be useful to share what I learnt.
Here's what to do:
1) Go to the tab editing page by clicking next to the little arrow next to the tab name, and then 'edit this tab'
2) Scroll to the bottom of the page, select the backup date and time you'd like to restore, and click on 'restore now'. Bingo: crisis averted.
