Hey folks. Hope you can help me out on this.

I was making my own website for my artwork (figure an artist should make his own) and I had some problems with my computer and the C drive had to be wiped and I lost the copy of Dreamweaver. I saved the folders with all my stuff in them, but now I can't find the site anywhere. I'm sure I must have saved it, but can't find it anywhere even though I wasn't working on the C drive (least I don't think I was).

If I open the index.html file and preview it in a browser, all the links and buttons work perfectly, but I can't edit it and it's not finished.

I'm hoping there's an easy solution to this problem, but I don't want to risk making a mistake and losing the work I've done.

How can I get the site back in Dreamweaver so I can edit it?

Just redefine site (http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/define-your-site.php) and point it to the folder with the website in it should get it all back up and editable for you.
