I know the finance reports are gone after this and you also mentioned "saved forms" but being that I'm the STS and have not done direct clerk duties for a while I'm not clear on all this would be, nor were any of the clerks I've told so far.
That is all you lose -- the financial statements and the saved forms. What "saved forms" means is that just about any form you create can be saved. This would include patriarchal blessing recommendation, priesthood ordination, as well as confidential forms such as for disciplinary actions. However, most of these forms would be saved for only a short time, so there may well be none in that category. And if financial statements have not been printed but are needed, they can be requested again, so there's no real loss there.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
