A curious thing happened today; my project file disappeared.  I was at the Medwest Genealogy Center in Independence, Missouri, using TMG v9 to manage my research.  When I shut down, I backed-up TMG, and copied the backup file to a thumb drive.  When I got home this evening, I turned on my laptop, opened TMG, and the project file was gone.  On the opening screen, the box for selecting a project file was darkened.  I tried searching for the file using the file extension, but could find nothing.  I was able to restore from the backup, but now I am wondering how this could have happened.  If anyone has any ideas how I managed this, I would like to avoid it another time.

You're talking about the .PJC file, right? You checked to make sure that the .PJC file actually didn't exist?


Occasionally, the .PJC file gets damaged and requires repair or replacement. In these cases, the program can regard it as absent.


If it was completely missing, could your security software have moved it to quarantine?

Yes, the pjc file.  I should have mentioned, there wasn't any files in the Project folder, not even in the Sample subfolder.  When I restored the backup, I closed out and opened it again, and it seems to be fine.  If the program was damaged, I saw no hint of it beyond the fact that the project files had all disappeared.  I didn't seen any error messages, but I was getting "thrown out" of the library (they were closing) so there may have been one that I didn't notice.
