    Did you define a folder where to store your playlists? The favorites
    would be there. Otherwise in the cache folder. If you wiped that one,
    then in your backup.

    I don't think I defined a folder. I don't see any folder or file called "cache" in the Squeezebox folder under Program Files. I did wipe the cache in LMS yesterday.

    I don't have a backup of program files. I also did a Windows 7 uninstall of LMS during my troubles yesterday, if that messes me up.

    As a last resort:

    If I do a restore point back a year, which is the only restore point left, that would be a time when I'd already added most of my favorites.

    So where exactly would the cache folder be?

    What extension do the favorites have, or is it one long favorites file?

    Could I copy relevant files onto a thumb drive, then undo the restore point and add whatever I copied, into 7.9.2?

    Then check your system whether you have one. The file you're looking for
    is favorites.opml.

    If you wiped it then you certainly knew where to look for it? Check
    Settings/Information for the actual path.

    > I don't have a backup of program files.


    You should have a backup of your data. If you don't, then start doing it
    today.

    > I also did a Windows 7

    In that case you were asked whether you wanted to keep your data or not.
    If you decided not to keep it, then oh well. It's gone.

    > So where exactly would the cache folder be?


    See Settings/Information.

    I checked these two folders:
    Cache Folder
    C:\ProgramData\Squeezebox\Cache
    Preferences Folder
    C:\ProgramData\Squeezebox\prefs

    Thanks for your continued help!

    I found favorites.opml in prefs. It's only 1 kb so I assume there's nothing in there.

    What do you think of my using one of the un-delete programs to try and find the old favorites.opml file?

    What do you think of my idea to restore via Windows 7 to a year ago, copy that old favorites.opml file on a thumb drive, then restore via Windows 7 back to now, and put the old favorites.opml in place of the new one which only has 1 kb in it?

    Would be the newly created one.

    Give it a try. Make a copy of your new file first. Just in case.

    I'm not familiar with Windows ability to move back and forth in time.
    But in theory this certainly would be an option.
