How do I get my web back in Explorer?

I had to have my hard drive rebuilt, and I can open up the stuff I was working on in Frontpage Editor, but when Frontpage Explorer comes up, its blank.  I had two webs, and Explorer won't acknowledge them; it will only let me start a new web.  How can I get Explorer to locate my old webs?

You will need to import them. Frontpage keeps a machine specific file for each web and as your PC has been rebuilt this file will have been lost or over written. Use the import facility on the File Menu to restore your web.

It won't let me import an existing web, though.  It prompts me for a name and password for root access, but I don't have that access.  I'm preparing stuff on my PC to go to the network server later.

OK, Is the web you're working on currently on the server or on another drive / backup etc?. If it's on the server make sure that you have permissions to edit the web from your PC (basic I know but it may help <g>) Can you copy the files across to a network drive or your local PC? If so, can you then import the folder structure into your "PC based" web?

Hopefully this will give you a few ideas but if it's still not resolved we'll have to try something different.

Okay, I was rooting around, sort of pressing every button I could think of, and then I opened my web in the Editor and switched over to Explorer from there.  Walah! (or however you pronounce that)

It now 'sees' my web.  I don't think you gave me a direct "fix it" answer, but you helped stimulate my thoughts, so I'm giving you points.  Thanks for your help!
