Hi Billy,

Thanks for the instructions. I could not find the database info for all 
projects, no such a /Phenix directory under my home directory. I was 
able to restore the individual project history by the pool-down menu, 
projects-import project, and then browse for the directory for the 
project, because files in the .phenix subdirectory are ok.
