    I lost unprotected version of my map.
    Could someone unprotect it for me? Map was protected by Veroxians Map Optimizer.

    It will be hard to rebuild it, as everything is converted to jass, GUI triggers are gone, jass stuff has got wierd names, and things like that.

    Of course, it is possible to make it editable, but it is hard to recompile GUI data (which is what he, basically, needs).

    By the way discussions about deprotection is about the site rules. But meh, it looks like it's your map.
    I don't understand how "mapmakers" can't keep backups of their works. An RW DVD is around 2 $. I'm sure everyone has at least one lying around somewhere.
    If you use Jass NewGen Pack is automatically backups your last 20-30 saves.

    When you formatted the disk, did you use "Quick formation" or "formation"?
    If it is quick, means data is still there.
