Default DCBackup / Package viewer...
Today I accidentaly deleted all of my downloaded conent from the launcher. I wanted to transfer my cc into another computer, so I backed up my DCBackup folder, which contains the installed Sims3Packages in .package format.

So, my question would be: Is there any way that I could restore my DCBackup folder, or if not, how can I view the package files easily to redownload the items? They are randomly named with characters.

I know that I can browse the files with Sims3Pe, or open them one by one in TSR Workshop but this takes a lot of time...

Thanks for any help.

You should be able to just dump the .dcbx files back into the DCCache folder.

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

Do you mean
- you deleted the Sims3Packs from the Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\ folder (checked the Recycle Bin?) or
- you selected all boxes in Launcher and deleted them from the Download tab in Launcher ?
