Posts: 5 file gone!

I'm running Sage V7 on a Windows 7 machine. I had to physically move the machine and lost track of the connections for the external drives. I wanted to take advantage of the moving files instructions by editing the file but found it did not exist! The backup was there with the correct date but no file itself. I figured I could copy the backup and create the file myself but I have found zero information on what the file extension is for the file. So, would knowing the file extension allow me to succeed or do I have bigger problems?
Thank you for any assistance.

On my Windows 7 machine, running SageTV V9 (32 bit), the file is in this directory:

C:\Program Files (x86)\SageTV\SageTV

The file name is as you mention:

As I understand it, .properties is the file extension.

I just searched my Win 7 Sage Server c: hard drive for *
and it found the source file as well as the backups.

Thanks for your response. If I understand what you are suggesting, I should copy the to a new file with no further extension and

then proceed forward with the edit. I'll give it shot and let you know what happens.
