Hello, collegues.
The problem is as follows:
While playing around with Tbs I created one and after all I decided to delete it.
I clicked ONLY RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON on it ( IT IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!!). The TB became highlighted and I've chosen DELETE option from the menu. Wtihout any thought I pressed OK and all of a sudden I realised, that I have deleted NOT THE TB I WANTED TO DELETE!!!!!! After playing with options I realised that PRESSING RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON ON THE TB DOES NOT MAKE IT ACTIVE!!!! It just highlights it and THAT'S ALL!!! Your actions still influence on the TB activated the last time (by default the first TB in the list).
So, I have deleted 3 months of work. about 5-7 k terms.
Has anyone met the same problem? And if yes, then how can I restore deleted TB? Because 10 data recovery programs have found only a few of IndexXX.mtx and that's all.
I thank you in advance for any reliable suggestion.

Do nothing till you hear from Support Dec 14, 2016

I would stop and do nothing.
Kilgray Support are brilliant at rescuing such situations, though I don't have a clue as to whether they can do anything here.

I presume from what you are writing that there were no backups made on a regular basis. If so, you are probably lioke 90% of translators. I think I'll just do back my TBs up myself after reading this cautionary tale
