If you don't have any .iwprj .iwprj2 or .iwzip files, you can only rebuild the projects. There is no conversion from html / php to WX5 project. You can import the data from the published page.

Use Windows Explorer to check whether such files still exist. It happens that the project directory is changed during an update.

Or have you just not selected a subdirectory in wx5?
Which version of wx5 are you using?

Seane, how bad was the crash?

Have you replaced the HD and have access to the old HD?

or

Do you still have access to documents, pictures, etc that were on the HD prior to the crash (in which case there is a high likelihood that your projects are also on the HD because they are normally stored in the documents folder)? If you have all files and folders from your documents directory before the crash there is a high likelyhood your project/s can be recovered.

or

Did your HD get formatted (catastrophe).

The one project backup you have, in what form is it? Is it an iwzip file? Is it a bak file (created by WX5)? Is it a copy of the folder holding your project at the time?

It would help us help you if we knew what version you are currently using (please complete registration through your profile) and what version is/are the lost project/s in.

This iwprj2 file is not a complete backup file, but you also need all the other files where this file was located.
Then you can try to start or convert the project in the new version. But you have to see it in the project preview and set the path to it.
