Restore Backup File for Evolution 12Author: Charlene G.
Yesterday my projects were no longer are listed in the start menu for Evolution 12. I searched my computer and finally found some very old backups from a year ago. I was able to import one of them. Obviously I've made many changes in the past year; but for some reason unable to find those files. After reading through this forum, I tried a few things, but still cannot get correct functionality. For example, I found an old folder with all my updates, and took an "uploaded" file out of a backup file (like this instruction from the form: Inside the folder Backup you need to select one of the present files which you want to restore (usually a recent file is chosen).The files name will be similar to this "uploaded_20130624115544.iwprj" (20130624115544 stands for year-month-day-minute-seconds). Rename the selected file into "project.iwprj". Last but not least, copy the renamed file "project.iwprj".Inside the previous folder. In this way it will substitute the old one. Now it is possible to select the project again and to open it.)
Anyway - so I copied the most recent "uploaded" file that I could find, changed the title to project.iwprj and put it in the old project that I imported (from one year ago). The directory looks good and the text all seems to show, however, none of the photos show up.
