Lost data

I had a HD crash, I found and reloaded DT 1.9.16. with some file in the DT folders. Got most everything, but then noticed that many of them are just a title, no document. So just now I tried to rebuild the database and it just dropped all the entries with only a title. Yicks. No I am afraid to do anything! The Database info panel still lists all the documents that were “rebuilt” into ether. I may just need someone to explain which files I should find on my backups and how to bring them to the new HD. thanks so much

DEVONthink Personal 1.x stores its database & files in the folder ~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink of your home/user directory. After restoring the backup, please check that everything is fine via Tools > Verify & Repair.
