    PC reset loses books, how do I get them back?


      I reinstalled ADE, and activated it,  after a factory reset of my PC. Now the books I had purchased are no  longer on my harddrive, and have 'missing' written on them..how can I  get these books back on my ADE bookshelf?I have sucessfully added new books, but I want my older books too!

          The books may still be on the harddrive somewhere, just not where ADE is expecting to see them.

          This is particularly likely if the reinstall of ADE was a different version than the previous install.

          I think they moved where books are saved.  I can't remember which ones save where, I've moved mine around a bit.

          C:\Users\<you>\Documents\My Digital Editions


          Have you scanned the entire hard drive to check if the books are there somewhere?

          The free Agent Ransack is a good tool for this: search for all .epub files.
