Import lost data?

We maintain two GA profiles: one for a development environment and another for production. We lost about one week's worth of data from production when the header file was overwritten but it exists in the dev profile. Can I import that data into the production profile?

Hi Shannon G,

There's no way to move data around from one view into another, unless you are a Premium client, in which case you may be able contact Google directly to see what they can do for you. What you may want to consider is to create a raw data view, where you don't have ANY filters applied. This will at least serve as a backup of all your data in an unmodified format.
