I installed Windows 11 over my Dell PC desktop running Windows 10. I thought every thing went fine till I discovered one of the things that is a MUST...my AZZ Card File program files I created. It worked in Windows 10. I can open the program but not the the files. In fact I can't even find the files. I can't search for them by name because they were named dates like March 12 2020 and I don't know the dates. No, I didn't have a backup. Yes, I've contacted the dev but he's not answering. Yes, I've searched the drive for .azz with no results.

OK, I just did a test. I created an azz file in the AZZ program. Saved it in the default azz format and tried to open it. It worked! It opened the file. But, when I try to open a sample file that was installed with the program named azz.azz, I get this error message..."azz.azz" the system can not find the file specified. I'm out of ideas. So I think this is telling me the files just didn't make it over from the update. Anyone have any thoughts other than you're an idiot for not backing up first?

FYI:

Lots of information there especially about the .azz files.

Read the link completely before doing anything. Look for other similar links within AZZ.

Also create a couple of backups with what you have now: e.g., My Documents and other folders were the .azz files may happen to be.

It appears that you have some viable options with regards to recovering your files.

I don't know how I got my AZZ file info back. I started to read your generous reply, decided I just needed to "step away from the computer" and take a break. Came back, looked around in the File Explorer, opened some files. Nothing. A little later an azz.bak just appeared on my desktop lol Opened it and BOOM, there it was! Closed the AZZ program, saving the file as an azz file AND put a copy of it on a backup drive (that I've never backed up to). So, I'm giving you the credit even tho I have no idea what happened. It's all good and THANK YOU!
