Dreamweaver 4 Site Definition I've lost all of my defined sites justa
When I opened DreamWeaver this morning to make some updates my site window contained no sites.
I was working with DW4 9 hours ago and everything was fine, and 34 defined sites were still there.
Before I went home last night I ran the maintenance wizard which scanned disk & defraged. Could this have erased my sites?
This is the 3rd time it has happened in 4 months, does anyone know why or have a solution to get them back (besides redefining all 34)?
I don't think the files are erased, but I do believe that they are renamed or more like restructured. If I am not wrong, scandisk will change (or ask for change, as per the settings) of the directory/file name it is too long.
Next time when you run scan disk, change the options.
Hope this is what you were looking for.
I've been searching around the macromedia forums trying to find a solution without much luck. I found a link [ youneedawebstore.com] which offers a product which will back up your site definitions.
After doing a bit more poking around my computer I found the sites cache is kept in .....
C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 4\Configuration\SiteCache
....and the actual defined site sits in the Registy at
-Site0 -Site1 and so on.
Just in case it happens again I've take a copy of the site registry file with the 34 sites inlcuded.
Vishal>> I'll have a look at the settings now.
If the ScanDisk has restructured these files, where would they have gone?
sounds like it's wiping out the file. been running DW for like 3 yrs now and never had this happen, nor have i heard of it before..
