PAF has the habit of asking you to create a back-up file every third time that you close the program by default. Unless you changed this default, then you likely have a backup file somewhere. From the [file] menu click on [restore]. Version 5 stores backup files in .zip files. Double click on the file and click on restore. You will lose whatever you added after your last restore, but it beats entering everything again!

Good luck!
