Can Download Statistics be Restored?
I updated one of my mods today, and was under the impression that, as long as the name of uploaded file is kept the same, the download count will not be reset to 0. However, this is exactly what happened--despite the filename not being changed, its download count is now zero. Is there a way to reverse this? I'd hate to lose the accumulated download count. Also, how can this be avoided in the future?

This is the updated mod.

Thanks!

It looks like you deleted the old file before uploading the updated version, which is why your statistics were reset. Unfortunately, it's not possible to restore stats for a deleted file.

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

Thanks for the quick reply. So the correct procedure to updating a file is to upload a new one with the same name without deleting the old file first?

Make sure it's an exact copy, down to gaps, capitals letters everything. The new file has to overwrite the old one to keep your download count.
