I had to format the HD an reinstall Windows, and I forgot to copy the ENU folder, which contains the library of images of my maps. I was thinking that all icons and images were lost, but when opening the maps I saw that the icons and images are still there. But they are not in the library folder, and I could not find out where they are. They appear in the maps and in the index, but I can't find them in the icon, images or favorites folders. Also I can't add the images and icons that are in the maps to the folders. I just can see them. How can I add them to the library?

Copy the combined parent map file and change the extension to .zip

Extract the zip folder.

Open the ico subfolder.

Change the File Explorer view to one of the larger icon views

Hopefully you will see your custom icons.

Rename the files and copy them to your Library Icon folder.

I suggest copying them to a folder in your user directorys and using the Options - Package Folder to map them to your Library
