Recent list and preferences reset themselves?

Tonight when opening cubase all my recent list was gone, my preferences where reset and also my connections, is there anyway to get this back? And why did this happen does anyone know?

Did you have a crash or difficulty in shutting Cubase down the previous time you used it?
Cubase automatically creates new Preferences files if anything happens to the existing ones which are updated every time you close the program…thus is there’s a problem upon closing you lose them. I’m not aware of a way to recover the old ones as I think the new ones just overwrite the old.

Once you’ve rebuilt your preferences make sure you take backup copies in case this happens again.

Thanks for the response, no I dont think i crashed at all… Very weird. Thats messy…

This happens to me fairly regularly so I use Acronis True Image to back up my Steinberg preferences daily.
