i feel really stupid asking this question after searching win95/98 for "lost files" and finding no-one has replaced a file accidentally.
is there a program or way to recover my accidently replaced pgn files? i was at the internet chess club and my autosave wasn't working and while trying to manually save a game that i wanted to study, i replaced my c:/BlitzIn2/TerranKotra.pgn file thinking i was replacing the game that wasn't loading. now all 1000+ games in my database are history. wahhhhhhh! are the files gone or just hidden?

p.s. too bad you don't have an akira or takato icon :rolleyes:

p.p.s. this site rocks! i will be placing it on my 3 best links list

Hi takatomon1,

Welcome to the site, please excuse the delay,
hopefully things here are OK now.

I assume you have tried the FIND facility?
You can set the choices to select files between dates,
So if you know when the files were moved or modified,
the system can return a list of files, and hopefully they
may include the ones you want.
Start, Find, Files or folders, Date Modified,
then have a little read, and choose what suits best.

Best of luck with it,
Regards, John

thanks again john1. the files are history. whatever you do people... NEVER REPLACE A FILE UNLESS YOU WANT THE OLD ONE TO DISAPPEAR FOREVER! it may be that some software i've downloaded since then overwrote my pgn files. *sigh* wish i knew about this site earlier.:(
