Forms.dat corrupted

Post by Bruno » Fri May 12, 2017 5:14 am

Hello,
Is there a way to fix a forms.dat corrupted file ?
After a crash, Avant Browser behaved like after a fresh installation. I'm used to that (I'm using Avant for several years) and usually, it's just matter of reseting de layout, the home page, the bookmarks and a few config details. But this time, I lost my uge autofill set. No one was showing anymore. I tried different things and for instance, changed their path in the config. Avant seemed to retrieve and backup them but... nothing appears in the menu.
I tried to recover the forms.dat.bak but it was helpless (it has the same size than my working forms.dat btw). The only thing I could do is to recover a few month old forms.dat.
OK, my fault. To gain time (and because I trust Avant for years) I don't backup Avant profiles very often...
Is there a way or a tool to rebuild my forms.dat ?
Thanks a lot for your help
Bruno
