My laptop's hard drive recently crapped out, and I had to reinstall everything. Before doing so, I made sure to back up all the Notepad++ backup files located in C:\Users[User]\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\backup\ .
Now I've successfully reinstalled Notepad++ (the newest version, v7.4.2), and I've put the old backup files into the new backup folder, but when I open Notepad++, it fails to restore the old backup files.
I recognize that there are a lot of existing Superuser questions that are somewhat similar to my question. But I know exactly where the backup files are and where they belong, and I have both "Remember current session for next launch" and "Enable session snapshot and periodic backup" checked. My problem is that I can't get Notepad++ to restore the backup files that are in the backup folder.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
