    I had around 45 tabs open in chrome and my clown of a brother turned off my computer via the mains.

    So now i have lost all my work etc and most importantly the sites i was doing work on.

    Any idea's on how i can recover?

    Thanks

    If chrome doesn't give you any options or restores all tabs from the previous session automatically then it doesn't look good.

    You can look at your history and open the tabs back up that will get you somewhere.

    Also, if you hit ctrl + shift + T it will open the last closed tab, maybe try hitting that 45 times :D

    My brother turned it off by the mains plug so not only did i loose the browser stuff (Recovery window didnt come up) but also my work in programs so i'm just having a beer to chill out.

    Going to buy myself a home server and bolt it onto the desk and then i will cable tie the plug onto the socket so he cant mess around with my stuff.

    Repped you also haha

    Try this:
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=382b40943a68b08e&hl=en
    But I think you've probably lost that session forever if you're on Chrome now, or have already opened & closed Chrome after restarting your PC, or have cleared the cache. Please pray that I am wrong on this.:)
