Finding Unread Threads from before mark as read date

#1
Hi,
I am admin to a forum that I had to take down for a couple of months for personal reasons. I've just put it back up but all the unread posts are no longer displayed, presumably because they are too old.
The trouble is, I kbow some of those were pretty important for me to read and I don't want to have to wade through everything to try and find them!
Is there a way to interrogate the db or something to find out which threads have posts I have never visited? I'm talking 20-30 posts so I don't mind *too* much if its a manual process.
Thanks

That data won't have been maintained. The read tracking data is only kept for as long as the "Read Marking Data Lifetime" option specifies (30 days by default).
