Unfortunatelly doesn't look like I would. Nothing can be done. I can try and seach for threads, but I do not really even know how many threads I lost and which ones. Ok, maybe a couple or a few, but not all.

There is a Google search at the top of the DC pages, on the right that will search Discuss Cooking. No need to write out DC at all. It's a search of the Discuss Cooking forums.

Another tool I use is to go to my subscribed posts in User CP, and use CNTL+F to find a word I know is in the title.

You might be able to system restore back past the deletion, and, if it works, you would be back where you started

I am afraid it is too late for that Jim. I wish i had your advise when it first happened.

And as far as search, Z, what do you mean by "Google search"

I'm not sure why it would be too late. You can restore back to any point in the restore database. I am no computer expert, but I have had a fair amount of luck in restoring a computer. At any rate, it can't hurt, you can always undo a restore.

Jim, he can only restore his computer. That will not affect any settings here at DC. There is no system restore to recover things here.

Alix,

If he ran an Advanced Search using his name would that not return all the post that he made? From there he could find the names of all the threads he had subscribed to. It would take time and I THINK it can be done.

Dave, I suggested a similar search (click on user name and then Find all posts by...) Charlie says there are some threads that were not his. I think he is SOL. So sorry about this Charlie.

At the top right of the page of the DC site is the "Google search". It is on the same line as "Discuss Cooking; Discuss Life" which is on the left side.

Ah, I see now. I was using v1.1 and it is not there, but now that I switched to v2.0 I see it.

And Dave, most of the threads I kept were not mine. My recipes I store in the pc, but others not.

I really think there should be a way to save threads to a "favorite" (let's call it favorite folder that is not related to subscription folder. Hey administration can you please look into it.
Really how else can you keep threads we like.
