you could have simply exited and said NO to saving.
but anyway, for recovery:
- exit LBC.
- make copies of your backup files and your main file (copy your whole directory or whatever)
- ok now move your bad .mcf file (thats the file with the real content) to a safe place.
- and copy one of your backup .mcf.bak or .mcf.bk2 to filename.mcf
- of if you've made *explicit* backups using the maintenance menu, they will be anmes FILE_date_.mcf
- and then restart.
now the main danger with recovering from backup is that you will mess up and overwrite your backup files in the process, so please do make a copy of everything safely before trying to restore stuff.
keep in mind something that may confuse you. LBC uses 2 files, a .mcp and a .mcf
the .mcp is what tells it which .mcf files are loaded. the .mcp file gets backed up but it's really pretty insignificant.
the files you care about are .mcf files. usually you have only one .mcf file open at a time but you can have multiples.
let me know how it goes.
