Macros gone......

Technical Support
Hi was playing wow today and noticed all my macros have gone. looked around the forum etc noticed there was some stuff that didnt help. I logged out correctly etc didnt force close. all the character 1s are there but general 1s are not there.

A backup of your macro's should be stored in your WoW folder, go to:

WoW / WTF / Account / >youraccountname<

There should be files named macros-cache & macros-cache.old.

You can open both with notepad, your lost macros should hopefully be there.
In addition to Telahnni's post, I would like to add that there are 2 places where you can store macro's. The 'General Macro's' are account wide and stored in .../World of Warcraft/WTF/Account/ACCOUNTNAME/macros-cache.old while character specific macro's are being saved in .../World of Warcraft/WTF/Account/ACCOUNTNAME/ServerName/Charactername/macros-cache.old
So the file location you'll find your macro's in depends on which ones you've lost.

If you find your lost macro's in the backup file, then you can simply copy paste them in your macros-cache.txt file, or remove your current macro file, and rename the .old file extension to .txt.
