I've never heard nor seen a rulesbackup.dat and I really don't know
what it is.
How would I put it back if I had a backup? Just change the name
of the backup file and delete the new one?
I would give that a try. Besure to do it with SM closed. When you
reopen SM are they there?
I'm going to skip the restore attempt, because I found that all of
the news groups I read but that *one*, still had their original
It's only the one group that has SO many filters that was wiped out.
That's why I still believe it has a "volume" limitation, which
created a file over-run or something.. Sure wish I knew what it is.
P.S. - The lst message looks like that, because I'm having that "line
wrap" problem again. Having to use rewrap makes this mess.
