Likely you have far fewer actual folders than you think. I might think you could easily clobber anything with TMP in the name, as it's likely temporary and not really used.
Personally, I'd start with that, recompile and see if everything still seems to be intact. My guess is that you will be surprised that it is.
The hhp master file is in one of the temp files (7zO3A40.tmp), along with pictures. Deleting the other temp files has resulted in missing content in the publication. Even deleting folders that are empty results in content being deleted from the publication. Somehow the master file seems to live parasitically off of all the folders. Is there anything I could perhaps save the xpj file as so that I may end up with just one folder (but there is no "Save as" option in Robohelp 11...)? Thanks.
Maybe you would like to try using the chm file to reverse engineer a RH project – check out Peter Grainge’s site (grainge.org) & Willam’s (wvanweelden.eu) for info on the subject
Jeff, thanks for your reply. The multitude of files is actually the result of the reverse engineering method...
Hmm, I just tried the KeyTools method on some random chm that someone sent me & I don’t get anywhere near the same sort of mess that you’ve got. I’d suggest trying it again or looking at Willam’s paid help to recover better results than what you got.
Can you try decompiling with the hh.exe? That avoids keytools and perhaps will work.
My recovery scripts use either the hh.exe or Keytools. So if you get a mess from Keytools AND hh.exe, it will be hard to recover from there.
