Import old Talend files to New workspace


The workspace I worked before crashed because lack of memory on the machine, It followed with corrupting the project file and the workspace couldn't open again. So now we work on an old back up workspace and we want to import the jobs from the workspace that crushed. The issue is that we don't have exports of the jobs, as Talend expects for the import, only the .item and .property files for each job. 

Tried to import the jobs with help of this, (Open the projectName/process folder and see if there are two files: jobName_0.1.item and, if so, copy these two files and go to Navigator viewer-->projectName-->process and paste them, and then go to Repository viewer and press 'refresh' button.), but it didn't worked.

After investigation I noticed that .property files are empty for each job. 

So my question is if there is a way for restoring property files for the jobs, or any other way for importing the old jobs in the new workspace. 


Thank you in advance.

Can you import all items from your backup of workspace? Please have a look at this document about:TalendHelpCenter:How to import items.
