Where are the xml files located? And how do I restore the backups? I have a a lot of them in the backups folder.. I'm sorry if I'm being a pain :/

It can unfortunately be a pain to sort through the Backups folder, and there's not really any advice I can give you other than to use the ones with latest dates. The problem is figuring out which files are corrupted, which isn't easy. If you open up the files in your LaunchBox\Data folder (and subfolders) one-by-one in a text editor, you might be able to figure out which of them are corrupted, so I would start there.

Did one last fresh install on the same HDD then copied everything from my old LB folder to the new one and it worked. I had two corrupt xml files which LB told me about.
