File this away; One day you’ll need it
I know that I did last week 😦
This revised version from Google clarifies issues
I encountered when attempting to correct a problem
My problem was that all of my Nik Collection
Favorites, presets & recipes disappeared
During a re-install of the Nik Collection
This problem is not solvable
UNLESS YOU BACK UP YOUR COMPUTER (I do)
Assuming that you do system back ups
A simple restore gets your missing data back
The Question – Which files to restore?
The Answer – The above table “tells all“
Interestingly, the standard Windows System Restore
Based on a restore point from just hours
Before the problem occurred (caused by me)
Did not restore these files
Win Restore doesn’t “touch” documents
Did these files fall into the document category?
Don’t know, but was disappointed when it didn’t work
I’ve often mentioned that this blog serves as a personal
Notebook for future reference to material
That’s important to me but that I’m apt to forget
This is a prime example
Once it’s recorded, the site’s Search feature (right column)
Will save my ailing memory (& my butt)
Hopefully others are helped, too
But, that’s not the primary reason for most of what I post
That said, I’m happy to do posts based on
Reader’s questions 😉
