Lost tracks and waypoints

Yes

OpenCPN keeps tracks routes and waypoints in a file named "navobj.xml". Each time It starts, it makes a backup of "navobj.xml" and keeps the last 5 backups. They are named "navobj.xml.1" thru "navobj.xml.5

If you ran O 5 times since you lost your data, it is gone for good. So make a backup of those files before trying anything.

You will find those files here:

Windows: C:\ProgramData\opencpn\
Linux: /home/user/.opencpn/

Re: Lost tracks and waypoints

You don't, just replace the "broken" navobj.xml with the backup of your liking.
Or you can import any of them as GPX, it is what they are.
Edit: And make sure that you are replacing navobj.xml while OpenCPN is NOT running
