ALL projects missing!

I've been using EW for years without a problem... This morning I opened it and found that all my projects are gone!
If they are still on my hard drive where would they be and how do I point EW to them?

Hi Steve,

Sorry for the problems you are experiencing.

Your project files can't really disappear out of nowhere, but lets try and figure out what could have happened and hopefully you have not lost any work.

1. Have you used an uninstaller to remove an older version of EverWeb? Many uninstall apps will remove all supporting files so it is not a good idea to use them unless you really want to remove all traces of any software

2. Are you logged into a different user account?

3. Did you recently update your operating system

4. Have you made any changes to your computer?

Your project files are located in your Library folder which is a hidden directory on your Mac. To access it;

1. Go to the 'Go' menu in the Finder
2. Select 'Go To Folder'
3. Enter the following exactly as shown in the Window that appears;

~/Library/Application Support/EverWeb

Do you see the EverWeb folder and anything inside there?

Hey Paul

I figured out the problem... Yes I use an uninstaller app. (App Cleaner) which I like a lot.. BUT I installed EW 2.5 beta then found that you can't publish with betas as you could when I was beta testing Easyweb etc... in the past. So I used AppCleaner to uninstall EW 2.5 which deleted everything! oops!

I do backups (not the EW pref one) but hadn't done one in a while... : (
BUT LUCKLY App Cleaner moves the deleted files to the trash which I had not emptied since the uninstall and there I found the last version of the EW folder SWEET! Moved it back to where EW could use it and I'm back in business!

The take away of the story is to BE CAREFUL when using app uninstaller apps. And keep your backups updated! I got lucky this time!!

Thanks to Paul and Kate for their support!

Hi Steve,

Yes, those tools are used to completely remove apps and all supporting documents and files associated with those apps from your computer. ONLY use them if you want to remove all traces of specific software from your computer.

You can publish as long as you have an active account that includes the latest update.
