I "removed" a bunch of old projects I was not running any more just for aesthetics. Didn't realize the statistics would also be removed.

Is there any way I can recover the millions of points from these projects? Can't find any way to reactivate these projects. Not sure I remember all their names

I do have a week old backup, what files would I need to restore to go back to where I was last week?

thanks, tom kosvic

If you reattach to the projects you should get the credits back.

To find the names in the backups go to the projects directory and the sub-directories will list then. For Linux the projects directory is either in /var/lib/boinc or /etc/boinc - no idea for Windows.

To recover your lost project statistics, restore your backup from a week ago. Look for files related to the project directory, including any databases or configuration files. You'll likely need to replace the current project directory with the one from your backup.
