All Attachments Deleted - Need Help!
Jun 1st, 2010 at 4:52pm

I logged into my YaBB instance today and all posts that had attachments now show "(Attachment Deleted)" after the attachment name and the attachment appears to be gone. 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

First verify files are missing from yabbfiles/avatars folder by your Host panel or ftping your site.  Then check if you have an attachments.txt file in the ./Variables folder.  If they are still there, check the date on Forum Start date to see if it is accurate.  Try running the Maintenance functions in the Admin Center.
   If files are missing, reinstall from your backup, then run Maintenance functions.

All of my files are missing from the ./attachments folder but they are listed in the ./Variables/attachments.txt file.  The start date was set to when I upgraded to the latest release (4/3/2010) so I changed that. 

Can I simply copy the attachments from my pre-upgrade backup into the attachments directory since they are already in attachments.txt?

Sorry for my delayed response, I have been out of town for awhile. 

Your solution worked and I now have all of my attachments back online.  Thanks a bunch for your help.  This can be marked as solved.
