C:/ drive crash. New Win10. Help

Postby mesadude » Mon Aug 03, 2020 7:07 pm

I have the Newsbin Data folders etc on another drive. But not the list of servers I use etc. How do I install a new Newsbin? I go to my previous Data folder to hit the ini file to trigger Newsbin whenever it had crashed in the past. But a new Newsbin wants me to input servers etc up front. Will I have to do that regardless? Then try and figure everything else out? Had been using the latest beta version before the drive stopped working. Thanks!

I had to buy a new SSD, install a new version of Win10Pro. So everything I had set up before I will have to rebuild.

You just need to get through the installer. Once the installer is done, with real or fake data, you can then import the NBI file.

Also, with the crash I seem to have lost my key. How do I retrieve it?
Found it. But my Search says Subscribers Only, and I have been paying for Search. Did something change? Or do I need to update something?
Thanks, Mesadude
