Suggestion 1: Don't use LLBs. You just found out why. LLBs are a left-over from when Windows could only handle 8.3 names.
Your temp directory is specified through your LabVIEW options. From within LabVIEW select Tools->Options, and look at the "Paths" tab. The temp directory is usually "C:\Documents and Settings\youruserid\Local Settings\Temp". Note that if you rebooted the machine it's likely you won't find the temp file.
Suggestion 2: Send the file to NI. They can sometimes recover corrupted LLBs.
(emphasis mine) I just corrupted an LLB as "user x" then rebooted, looked up this page, went to my temp directory and found an uncorrupted version of my LLB. It was uncorrupted because I had recently used it as "user y".
I then copied the uncorrupted file to every disk drive within reach and vowed never to go so long between backups again.
Thanks for the tip!
