Mistakenly, I deleted the recent database I was working on. I can find the folders saved under "C:\Users\{Username}\openLCA-data-1.4\databases" however I cannot import the database folder to OpenLCA as it is not stored as zolca format. How can I import the saved database folder to OpenLCA? 

Thank you

Hm, when you delete a database from the openLCA UI, also the phyiscal files in the directory are removed. If you can restore these, or have these still, then you can make it "visible" again in openLCA by modifying a databases.json text file that you find on top of the databases folder. Make a backup of this, then open in a text editor. It looks like this:

insert the name of the database you miss, in the same "curly bracket structure", under local databases, then save and restart openLCA.

Good luck!

Yes, I guessed that since you deleted the database via the openLCA UI. Then, ideally, you have a backup..
