All of my content in TANE/TRS19 has disappeared. How can I get it back?

If all of your downloaded (including DLC packs) and custom content has suddenly disappeared, then this indicates that Trainz may have lost the 'link' with the LocalData folder, in which case it will generate a new LocalData folder.
Shut down Trainz. If on Windows, then ensure that tane.exe or TRS19.exe had ended (check in Task Manager no other tane.exe processes are running)
Navigate to the LocalData location, and find the "build xxxxxxxx" folder(s).
If there are multiple 'build xxxxxxxxx' folders, then please right click and then click on 'properties' for each one. This will tell you which one is the biggest; when you have worked out which is the biggest make a note of it's name.
If you used a different location for the LocalData folder before the content disappeared, then please ensure that the correct path for the location you previously chose is being used.
If the content is not re-loaded from the alternate LocalData folder, then it may not be possible to retrieve the missing content.
