Thanks Alex and Girvin.
(Sorry finger trouble - I know it's /var and not /ver!!)
I have accepted what has happened and am busy re-building my DB from
scratch! IMHO it is still WRONG to store Data in an area that gets
overwritten every time you do a upgrade or re-install. In over 30 years
in computers I have never seen this before!!! Maybe on big Mainframe
set-ups but defiantly not on Home Computer systems.
I will look into re-directing the data to a safer location once I have
my DB back in one piece!!
The mistake I made was not knowing about this so when I re-installed my
OpSys it formatted the area where the DB was stored so no chance of
getting back at it!!
Girvin - I hear what you say about RTFM!! BUT - I would qualify this, It
is something I have always recommended and do practice but in this case
I'm just a "user". I want to set-up a DB and use it on a daily basis. I
don't need, or am interested in, at this stage, becoming an SQL expert.
Therin lies a big difference I think!!
So current situation - I managed to get MyAdmin working again by
Flushing the Grant Tables so have set-up my new SQL DB, have linked it
to Base and am currently trying to get my CSV data into it. I guess a
week or twos work ahead of me at least and then, as I said, I will look
into how to move the whole thing to a SAFE location.
Thanks for all the great help guys - it's greatly appreciated here!!
Regards from a nice hot South Africa!!
