HOPEFULLY SOLVED: Really need help - crucial data files disappeared
Daz Studio 188.8.131.52
Windows Vista, 32 bit
My computer started shutting down on its own a few days ago, so I finally sorted it, but had to uninstall DAZ Studio and a number of other programs to make sure the error was sorted. Anyway, before I uninstalled I tried copying my Library files from my PC onto a DVD. The pc crashed and I have lost data files in the 4_0_2 folder relating to Genesis. I keep getting error messages for my DAZ files when I try to load them, and Genesis is absent completely from my pre-saved scenes. I tried a System Restore, but with it being Visa it didn't recover any folders/files, only a couple of programs. (our family pc with XP recovered files just fine last month)
Is there any way I can get these data/ 4_0_2 files back? My saved characters look really odd when I load their presets, rather than opening the scene I saved them in. I've included a screen shot showing the huge gap of files missing in the 4_0_2 folder (goes from B to GSuit, missing out all inbetween), and a section of the file log for a scene I tried to open.
If I create a new character for Genesis will the 4_0_2 files be re-created? Also, I'm not sure if I have the default content folder in the same place as when i originally installed Daz, but can't work out where else I could have installed it.
Just a selection from the log - all of the files apart from two are in the 4_0_2/Genesis folders
