[Pro] All files moved to trash?

Hello, I have just had a strange crash which seems to have led to me losing control over my freeway files. I was closing down cute ftp after uploading my site. On returning to freeway The site had disapeared! I tried to re-open using file/open recent but the file name was no longer in the list.
Through the finder I then checked the root folder and the files had gone from there too. I then checked the trash which is where I found them but missing the .freeway file.
I have downloaded all the files from the internet now in an attempt to build the site from there but again the .freeway file although it appears to be present is not seen when I try to open it in freeway.

I am stumped as to what happened and how I might rebuild the editable version of the site in freeway

I have the html pages

What about the FW created backup file - is it there?

It is called yoursitename.fwbackup and can be opened by holding the option key File>Open Backup and is automatically generated by FW on a regular basis.

Thanks for your reply David Just tried to open the fwbackup but although it takes me to the right folder the backup is unselectable.

Remember that you have to hold down the Option key and then File>Open Backup from the FW menu

It’s not in the Trash is it?

If you cannot open it then I would send it to support(at)soft press.com - I am sure that they will be able to do something with it for you.

I presume you have done the usual Disk First Aid, repairing permissions etc.
