    Yes I believe so. When I used the Windows reset tool, my assumption is that it created backups of all my files before wiping my drives. That's why there's a "File History" location now, with all my old data. I assume. I don't really know..

    Yeah, you have something that is renaming all of these files.

    FG looks for "campaign.xml" - it won't look for "campaign (2019_05_19 19_41_36 UTC).xml" and so won't think there's a campaign in that directory.

    Ah okay. Let me see what happens when I remove the timestamp.

    You're going to have to either:
    - rename all of those files to remove the timestamps. (make a backup of everything first).
    Or:
    - try to find the original files that don't have the timestamps in the filenames.

    @Trenloe - Totally. I just removed the timestamp from the campaign.xml file and now it's being detected. That's great! Which other files should I edit to remove the timestamps? Only in the campaigns directory, or in multiple folders across FG?

    Basically, any file that you're going to use - rulesets, extensions, modules, vault files, etc. XML and LUA files in the campaign directory, etc., etc..

    Do note that some FG files do have timestamps of their own built into them and you don't want to remove those. The ones I can think of are "db.sessions.####" files.

    All - thanks so much for your help! My session starts in 20m and I'm scrambling to get those file renamed. I'll report back on the thread once it's fixed.

    Again, thank you!
