Is there a way to reload the project into the gui? All files including the project folder still exists but are somehow not recognized by the gui.

It should be impossible to delete a project without user input; there isn't anything in the code that would permit this.  Could you please send me the file ~/.phenix/project_db.pkl?  The only thing I can think of is that if you just upgraded to dev-249 from 1.5-2 (or any nightly build before November) before running refinement, the format used to store the project data has changed and something might have been lost in the process.

My guess is that if you try to re-create the project in the GUI, it will re-initialize the project's job database, so you won't be able to recover the existing data.  I can send you a script to restore the project, however.
