I recently had all the folders and feeds in RSSBandit completely disappear on me. I had all my feeds set to keep unlimited posts, and I had some pretty high-traffic feeds in there (MSDN forums and feeds from people who seem to post fifty items per day). So maybe some limit was hit which caused the feed database to go kablooey.

    Can you look in the file C:\Documents and Settings[username]\Application Data\RssBandit\error.log to see if there is an entry there which may correspond to the incident?

    Also look for C:\Documents and Settings[username]\Application Data\RssBandit\subscriptions.xml.bak and rename it to subscriptions.xml

    If you feed subscriptions file got corrupted, the backup file may still be good.
