The best way I guess is to periodically back up the downloadsV2.db3. That's the file that contains these lists. I wonder if something happened and it's not loading up the actual NBI so it's using the wrong data folder?

You might want to try searching for DownloadsV2.db3 and see how many are on your PC.

The DownloadsV2.db3 file is there in the correct path that matches the path in the Newsbin.nbi
Is there anpther db where the wish list data is stored? Is anything in the registry?

The .db3 file is about 100 meg but all the lists are empty

It's all in one DB. It's a database so once it's damaged, it's toast.
