Somehow I have lost one of my WebHelp projects on my hard
drive. Must have been a copying mistake. No big deal because I have
it backed up on the network... right? Not so - or at least the way
I'm doing it is not working. I'm simply copying the entire project
from the network drive to my hard drive by doing a "copy and paste"
in MS Explorer. For some reason, not all of my topics are showing
up. Some show up and some don't. Can't figure it out. I've copied
and pasted several times with the same result. I can see the topic
on my hard drive in Explorer but when I open the project in
RoboHelp, the topic is not in the folder that it's supposed to be
in (on the Project Tab), nor is it on the "Topics" page. Any help?
Thanks. Lisa in Roswell
Are we safe in assuming that you have a duplicate copy of the
project on the LAN? If so, are you certain these are actual
project files and not
WebHelp output files?
Assuming it is actually the project, when was the last time
you made a backup copy? Is it possible that you actually had this
arrangement of topic locations at the time you made the backup and
later changed things? This is my educated guess as to what has
If the topic simply isn't in the project, it's pretty easy to
resolve that. Just right click the folder where it's supposed to be
and import it!
