JOSM - my filters are gone?

I repaired my Windows OS,all my programs were uninstalled including Java and JOSM

so now after i installed Java and JOSM,my filters from my .osm file are gone  - i had my objects filtered by name,in this case
The .osm file is still the same but no filters,and i had a lot of them

Are filters cached/stored somewhere?

is there anything that can be done?

Re: JOSM - my filters are gone?

The .osm file contains osm map data only. Filters are stored like all other programm settings in the preferences.xml file which is in the folder %appdata%/JOSM

If this file was deleted during your OS repair and you have no backup, then I fear there is no way to restore your filters.

(edit: There is also a preferences.xml_backup file in the same folder. However if the xml file was deleted then this file probably too.)

Re: JOSM - my filters are gone?

You didn't move to a new user account as part of the "repair" did you?  %APPDATA% will probably translate to something like "C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming".  There isn't still a "C:\Users\YourOldName\AppData\Roaming" is there?  Windows may try and prevent you getting at it - if it does you may need to find a friend who's more familiar with Windows admin to help you with it.
