Reinstalling localwp without losing data

Good morning everyone, something very serious happened after I installed the Kaspersky antivirus on my PC with Windows 11. Basically, after installing the antivirus I performed a sort of scan, optimization and cleaning of the operating system and restarted the PC. I found myself with a highly unstable and malfunctioning PC. So I uninstalled the antivirus but the problems persisted so I restored the system to a previous restore point. Now the system can no longer boot and I have to format the PC. On the PC I was working on a site with the latest version of localwp. I managed to copy the localwp folder to another hard disk as there is also Linux installed on the PC and I managed to copy the folder with Linux. Can I copy this folder or part of it to the new installation of localwp on Windows so as not to lose the progress made so far with the site I was working on?

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @damians

If you have the Local site files you should be able to bundle those up into a Zip and reimport the site into the Local app to get it going again. More details on that here:
