Bevore you do anything else, backup all you now existinbg data. Best ist if you use something like acronis backup, which takes a snapshot of the whole drive.
Are you sure there is no hidden copy of the dat file somewhere? As David recommended, try the search function to look all over your hardrive (after backup). If there really is none, or only the old one you just mentioned, you could be lucky trying the restore point. Keep in mind that your pc will be set back to an older state, so best is to get the most recent dat file after restoring your old version via the restore point and then save it to a safe, external place. Afterwards, use the acronis backup to recover your windwos state you have right now.

Another option you could try (after acronis backup) instead of the restore point is an undelete tool. Sometimes the files are still there, just not visible. look for ntfs file restore via google. Try to change as less as possible on the disc where hornresp was/is.

If you have a second PC, you coulduse this one to burn a CD with some rescue tools. hirens rescue cd might do the trick.

seems odd
windows update should not delete files that are not part of the os system.
hr is a stand alone program wich has nothing to do wit the os itself.
its more likely that your harddrive is defect.
do you use raid?
as sabbelbacke suggested use an undelete tool.
if that doesnt do it nothing wil .

I did use a recovery program, and i did find the files, but they where overwriten allready!
I have been scraching my head all day wondering how the files was deleted, but i really dont know.
But ok, i have the most important files in my head!
I have been building loudspeakers for 35 years and Hornresp is hands down the best simulation program i have used.
Keep up the good work David, you are the wiz!

Dag

Hi Dag,

Just out of curiosity, which version of Windows were you using, and what kind of Update caused the loss of the Hornresp.dat file?

Regards,

I have Windows 7 Home on my pc.
I'm not sure what the update was, other than it was "critical".

Windows update ruined my PC a few years ago. Changed the logon screen to require a logon but no place to click. After weeks of trying fixes I installed another version of XP that contained a boot virus. Finally got rid of virus and working fine since. Horn response is great!

Good news!

Backing it up is a good idea, I've lost my work several times.

Now, I store my Hornresp files in my Dropbox, which backs it up across my multiple PCs automatically, as well as stores it remotely for me.
