I'm in a bit of a tight spot (to say the least) after my laptop crashed a couple of days back. I got a new computer yesterday and have re-installed IntelliJ on it, as well as restoring my project files.
The only difference (that I can see) is that the project is now located in the c:\dev\ folder compared to the d:\dev\ folder and that IntelliJ is now installed on the c:\ drive on my new machine. I have restored my old IntelliJ settings files in the "C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\.IntelliJIdea60" folder where they were located before.
The problem is that all local history is lost for my project files?! I don't know what I have missed or have done wrong. Perhaps there is a correct or better, documented way to move/restore IntelliJ installations/projects with the local history intact?
I hope there is a helpful soul out there who can help me out?
