    Default Lost .nod file

    Hi all,
    My website's .nod file is missing(!).
    Is it possible to re-create the .nod file from the website (which is fine).
    Thanks in anticipation,
    Colecowes

    Default Lost .nod file.

    Hi,
    Many thanks for that. After a bit of thought, I dragged the User Sites folder from the old C drive to the replacement C drive, and Bingo!

    Saved me days of work, thanks again,

    As long as everything stays in the same place from drive to drive you should be all set.

    You may want to run a verify assets routine to make sure all of your assets are where Fusion things they should be

    See this tutorial for more details: http://www.gotfusion.com/tutorials/tut.cfm?itemID=357

    Hi all, I've gone & done a very silly thing. I'm in the same position as the OP & have copies of the html pages, images/assets etc, but no actual NOD file. I copied all this stuff to an EXT drive then reisntalled my system... I just didn't think of the NOD file at all, so never saved it. What are the options for restoring my project?

    Many thanks

    You can "try" to build it from the html but I have not had any luck doing this over the 12 years I have used the program. You usually end up with a mess that takes more time to clean up then to just start all over with a blank site project.

    1. Download the web site to your personal computer using a 3rd party FTP program
    2. Start Fusion
    3. From the menu bar select File > New Site > From Existing Web Site
    4. Navigate/browse to the local storage location of your web site and click on index.html
    5. Cross your fingers and see what you get.

    If it looks salvageable you can start to rebuild the design and layout.

    If it doesn't, start a new blank site, re-create your site style, then open your local web pages in your favorite web browser and copy/paste the text from the old site into the new site in Fusion. Use the image tool on the tool bar to place new copies of your graphics where you want them.

    Make sure you have your paste defaults set to unformated text (see attached screen shot for details)

    When you have it all reconstructed follow the steps outlined in these tutorials to make sure you do not have to do it all over again at a later date:

    I would not "trust" an external drive as your sole source of backup of your template files. I would suggest that you burn to CD or upload to your domain for safer storage.
