WE had some sort of corruption on our CiviCRM db and somehow lost data in different fields
One of these was a custom field containing uploaded files
THese files are still listed in the civicrm_file table and the file ids are also associated with the civicrm entity in civicrm_entity_file.
BUt they do not show up in the contact profile.
I tried adding a new file to a contact and this shows up. I can't see any difference between the record for the new file and the one for the old file.
Any ideas how to restore these? there are 756 files, so it would be a lot of work to manually do it.
