fix
Once you delete a migration project, you cannot recover the migration settings in that project. However, you can create a new project with a different name and add the same objects to the new project. The objects still reflect the status of being migrated and are available for rollback using the Granular Undo wizard. Domain Migration Administrator stores migration status and mapping information in the central Protar.mdb , not in the individual project databases.

note
Deleting a project has no effect on the objects that have been migrated in the project. Domain Migration Administrator does not delete the project folder and project database from the \Program Files\NetIQ\DMA\projects folder when deleting a project. However, no mechanism currently exists for reattaching this existing database.
