  • shannwilsonn,

    First of all what version of Project are you using? Is it fully updated?

    What data are you missing? Is it possible you have simply hidden some fields and therefore you don't see the data in those fields? If you have hidden some fields, then you can simply add those back to the view and you will see the missing data. However, if you deleted task lines or resources, then I'm afraid there is no way to recover that data except to go back to the last backup and start from there.
