I've moved and renamed my brain folder from

Of course, the subfolders U01\B01..B18 were moved with the main folder. They weren't changed in any way. But now I can't access my brains any longer. TheBrain 10 doesn't offer to open the existing brains, only to create new ones.

What can I do?

Quality is the result of attention paid to details.

If you moved the Brains folder manually, you will need to put the Brains folder back in its original location. Then reset the MetaDB file:

-Quit TheBrain
-Open a file explorer
-Navigate to your Brains folder (default location is either in the username folder or in Documents)
-Move the Brains folder back to the default location: Users/username/Brains

-Go to C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\TheBrain\MetaDB

-Open Finder
-Click on Go > Go to
- Type ~/.TheBrain/v9/MetaDB

-Rename the file there to TheBrainMeta.db.old
-Restart TheBrain
-Login again

This will force TheBrain to rebuild the Brains listing. You will need to log in again and reset your preferences.

If you still have issues, please contact for further assistance.
