All settings gone after power failure??

Last Friday we had a power failure, while I was working with IntelliJ. Now I start the IDE, but every setting seems to be gone. Errors about "$ROOT_CONFIG$/colors" and "config/options" xml files, see attached logfile.

In .IntelliJIdea14\config\ there is a settings.jar, I will try to use that to restore, but I still miss all my projects.

Any idea how this is possible??

Recent projects list is stored in .IntelliJIdea14\config\options\recentProjects.xml file.

There where a lot of xml config files missing, that is why I had to restore settings. There were no project settings, I had to open all my projects again.
I just wondered why this has happened.

Open files are often corrupted on power loss, we have a related issue logged here: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-110311 .
