Did you delete them unintentionally through the settings? If you did, sorry, there's no recovery ;)

The favorites.dat file has the passwords in it (only if you had the sites in your favorites), if you can trudge through all the odd characters in the file.

Also, history is not a reliable source for reconnecting to previous FTP sites. You should always store frequently used sites in your favorites.

Well, you may be able to recover these files from your hard drive with an "Undelete" program...

Webattack search on "Recover" and "Undelete"
Google search on "Recover" and "Undelete"

Try those. I guarantee you'll find something that will recover lost files (I'm not guaranteeing that you'll get these files, but the sooner you try the better)

Again, store your frequently used FTP sites in your favorites. Export your favorites to a text file and put the file on a disk.
