Accounts merged and now my files are gone. Molly Fisher 4/17/13 12:32 PM
I let someone else borrow my computer and when they logged into google, they managed to merge our accounts.  Her email address was the "primary" and mine was the alternate.  I removed my email from the account, but that ended up deleting my entire google account.  I thought re-signing up with that email address would fix things, but it just created a blank account, so it appears I have lost all of my google+ account info and the things in my google drive (I wasn't using the email).  I have some external links to some of my googledocs and they still work, but none of the docs show up in my newly created account.  Help!  How can I get back my google drive and my google+ account?

No. I tried chatting online with a representative and they basically told me it was all gone.  I never got any of my files back and I've had to start over, unfortunately.

Always use Incognito Mode for this purpose: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95464?hl=en
I mingle tons of computers/Gmail accounts and never had an issue.
