Angry Can Afterburner profiles be restored? - 02-11-2013, 21:03 | posts: 3

Hi there,
I just reinstall MSI Afterburner (2.3.1 now) but I didn't realized that all my profiles will be gone.

It took me a life time to find these exact and preciuos values. Is there any way to get them back?

Thanx so much for any advice.

Did you check in the AB install folder?

Yes, and they are physiacally here, but all the settings and adjustments are blank. Like if you installed that for the first time.

This drives me mad. I even tried Recuva app to find deleted files, but since they were probably not deleted but replaced (IMHO), it's mission impossible.

Thanx for the interest anyway.

When you upgraded, when uninstalling the previous version did you accidentally click no when it asks if you want to keep your settings?

Actually I did not uninstall the old version before. Just installed newer one right away, just like with the drivers.

Yeah, you can call it a cowboy style maybe, but never had bad experience with that before. Yeah, till now.

Probably should have uninstalled the previous version first, as I think not doing that may have been what borked your settings. Anyways the only thing I can think of is reconfiguring it back to your previous settings.
