I just added a new folder to the favorites and all my favorites are gone! Is there any way to recover? Please help.

there is a good chance for recovering your lost data because by default FreeCommander makes backups in your settings folder.

find the FreeCommander settings folder by clicking: Help - About
then
click Tools --> Restore all settings...

You might want to save a backup of your settings folder.

Thanks alf5000. That got my favorites back. No idea what triggered the wipe of them. Glad to know FC is keeping a backup around just in case though. I wonder if anyone else has experienced getting their favorites deleted. For me it was just simply trying to add a new folder for organization to the root node of the tree.

Thanks again,
