Puzzle 422 reset itself to de novo. I've lost my current best scoring solution and an alternate solution I was working with last night. And no, I did not fry my hard drive this time. Help!

The translation file is also destroyed

Is the translation file still broken with the newest update in main?

Update kills sometimes all auto saves including very/absolute/credit bests.
Only option to avoid it is manual save. Or make a copy of entire foldit and restore it and skip update.

I haven't had this problem in previous updates. And why would it kill Marie's translation file?

You may well be right, Rav3n. But what a bloody stupid glitch. Surely there's a way to avoid overwriting active solutions and translation files.

I have "locale" folder created in main foldit directory - there I have my translation safe.

Looks like update is killing autosaves from "default" track anyway.
Good I use another track...
