Thanks, Jan. I was afraid of that. Though my backup is several days
old, would it be possible to copy and paste from the old to the new?
Say, open the old one, go into the application browser. find the
group, copy it, open the new one and do the same to paste it there?
The one thing that has crossed my mind, is something I said from a
like circumstance in my Macinstrut.com articles on Revolution:
sometimes these things happen for the best, in that the next time we
do them we have learned from our previous mistakes and it is better
done in the end. Something good from something bad. Sigh! AND, more
frequesnt backups as well.
