Re: Recover database from *.frm files?

Thanks for the reply, Harrison. I wish I knew how I missed getting those MYD files! I thought that I did copy (compress to zip, actually) the entire datadir contents, but I only have the *.frm files in the archive. I guess it was one of the brain fart moments, where you look back and ask yourself "What could I possibly have been thinking?" [sigh]

Well, the semi-good news is that I do have most of the data around in other forms (CSV files used for creating mailing labels, etc.) It doesn't have all the fields, but I think it has all the records, so with some work, I think I can reconstruct it enough to get by. And what a good learning experience this is!
