File Recovery

My power went out. When I started Rad Studio it showed a file and said a backup copy was saved. It doesn't say how to save the file. It just shows the file name.

How do you recover that backup file?

Thanks,
Doug

If you know the filename, open it in the IDE and save it with the file
name you want it to be.

Well since it was already in the IDE when I restarted the IDE (10 files or so were already in the IDE). So is the file displayed in the IDE the old file or the new file that was recovered?

Thanks for the help.

At the bottom of the editor, there are three tabs and the one at the right is
named History, Click on that and see what you have in the backup, right-click one
the one you want and Revert.

You could compare them, after saving the backup file with a different
name and closing the IDE. I don't know if BeyondCompare is part of your
installation, but that would be a good way to do that.
