Rebuild categories?

Hey all, I just updated from 1.3.5 to 1.4.5.  Everything worked fine except that I overwrote my Categories.xml with the blank installer version.  I can't get my old categories back.

I put the original back but it's still displaying the one default BEdotnet category.  I checked my posts and they all still have the category codes and it matches the ones in the categories.xml I restored.  Unfortunately, it seems to have "cached" the new empty category file and I can't get it to recognize or rebuild my old ones.  Anyone got any idea how to rebuilt those, preferably without having to retag all my posts?  If it makes a difference, I'm using the XML store, not a true DB. 

Unfortunately, I'm on a hosted system, so I can't restart IIS, which is what I'd attempt next if it were my own server.


Update: It corrected itself after about three hours.  Not sure how long it takes to reload the files, but it eventually did it and figured everything out.  Sorry for the erroneous post.
