Unhappy Lost PRP M110817649

My work on M110817649 is missing! After my PC was updated and rebooted,
my Prime95 work was replaced with a new assignment: M110781499.
My assignment list shows M110817649 at 50.3% as of yesterday.
My reporting files show no new update since early this morning.
I'd like to resume work on M110817649 if that's possible.

Was prime95 installed in a directory where you have write permissions? And not in some temporary folder that Windows deletes on reboot?

That's only possible if you have any saved files (checkpoints) from the former run. The server doesn't store those, your computer does.

Try going to (make sure you are signed in)
Find the assignment line for the exponent in question (the one in a box in the bottom half of the page.). Copy it.
Go to Prime95, stop it, and exit.
Find your Worktodo.txt file. Open it in a text editor.
Under the [Worker 1] line, insert the assignment.
Save the file.
Restart Prime95.

Thank you! That did the trick. I'm back to the assignment I had been doing.
