saved searches disappeared

Postby hxl7 » Sun Aug 08, 2021 1:34 pm

I launched X1 today and was shocked to see that my Saved Searches were no longer there.

The only thing I can think of is that I had run Windows Update a day or two prior to using X1.

Is there a way to recover the list?

Is there a file I can save as a backup in the future?

Thank you.

I haven't played around with this in a long time, but saved searches are stored in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\X1 Search\saved searches Are they still there? Whether and how custom searches are shown I believe is handled by C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\X1 Search\navigationtree.xml If your saved searches are still there and the xml file also mentions them, I'm not sure how to get them to show, sorry. To be safe you could make an occasional backup of those files from now on, and if this happens again, see of copying them back to their original location fixes things.
