To answer your question, Judy, I am not using the built-in backup database. The most recent one of those is dated Jan. 3rd. Since I didn't have a more recent AW backup, Thom recommended taking the entire AW folder from the disk image created on my exterior HD and pasting into my C drive. So that's what I did a few minutes ago, and it seems to be fine -- lost everything since the 14th when that disk image was made (still better than going back to the 3rd), but at least Invoice numbers & Lot numbers aren't a jumbled mess like they were when I used the Karen's Replicator backup.
So now I need to reconstruct the last week's worth of data. I could just change the statuses of Invoices and leave it at that, but I was wondering if there was a way to retrieve the recent emails from my former (corrupt) AW folder? There are a bunch of files named Email Inbox and Email Outbox, but what if they're just as messed up as the overall data was? I didn't have my email set to leave copies on the server, so that's out. Any ideas?
