Hello Moritz,

Thank you for the suggestions. r.info returns the following
WARNING: can't read range file for [toc10 in toc]
ERROR: Unable to read range file

The frange file I found seems to be there but it is not readable.

I am beginning to thing that whatever I deleted was not recovered and that
I will need to read the data back into grassŠ
What a pain!

Thank you all for your suggestions.
