Sorry to hear this! I'm trying to replicate this but I don't encounter this issue. Do you mind raising this with the PDN team for their detailed investigation? You can do this by clicking the black feedback button on the right side of your browser screen. I will follow-up on this in parallel.
Again, I'm sorry for the loss of content and your time.

Colleagues, thank you for such a promt handling of the issue, this is great to receive such an intensive support from you.
For me the scenario was - write a post -> click preview -> close the window with a close button
I know that the issue is partly my bad - I usually backup everything I type into the browser using notepad, but this time I overwritten my back up. Another mistake I did was to click close button window - I assumed it was in a new window as on many other forums, but I was wrong.
As a possible suggestion to solve the issue: the user might receive a warning when closing such unsaved post and/or all posts might be saved automatically every few seconds in draft mode (check how it is done on http://stackoverflow.com/) - this would be an ideal option.
Thank you Ivan for reporting this for us initially so that we could get it resolved! We do apologize for the inconvenience and frustration. You bring up some great features! Do you mind submitting those using the Feedback button on the right pane? Those go directly to our Developers here. This way if we do bring back the Preview feature, we will have the functionality in your request to go off of.
