Hi Anna, I'm sorry, it's not possible to recreate a PowerPoint file from your published output. When you publish a course, it's kind of like baking a cake - your slide content gets transformed to Flash (a different format from PowerPoint entirely) - once it's baked, you can't pull out the raw ingredients in their original form.

Something you might consider using is a free service such as Dropbox, which allows you to keep an online backup of your project files really painlessly - a lot of folks here in the community use it and it's a great service. I know that that doesn't really help in your current situation, but it could help prevent losing your work in the future.

Hi Yulstar, the player template is stored in the project's PowerPoint and PPTA files. If you  no longer have those files but if you DO have access to the computer where the project was originally created, you might still be able to find the player template file on that computer's hard drive. See this knowledgebase article for info on where you can look for the player template file: http://www.articulate.com/support/kb_article.php?product=ap9&id=iwhjesgizi7m  If that's unsuccessful, unfortunately there's really no other way to access the original source file or the player template.
