I installed the latest version of Wordfast, and during the installation process a dialog box came up asking me something. Unfortunately I was typing at that moment and didn't see what it was asking me (one of the options was chosen randomly by my typing).

Now I see that all my settings were deleted, all my personal glossaries and links to projects.

My question now is whether there is a relatively painless way to get everything back? I'm assuming a directory was thrown into the garbage, but I can't seem to figure out what one to move back.

(PS. Why on earth would someone want to delete all their previous project settings during an upgrade?)

Which Wordfast? Oct 10, 2013

I don't know the answer to your question, but I expect it would help others to answer if you would inform us whether this refers to WordFast Pro or Wordfast Classic. (I expect it's Pro since you mentioned links to projects.)
