I can't find my wallet.dat anywhere within my /bitcoin directory (or any subdirectories therein).  I did some test transactions from the pool I'm in and sent a grand total of maybe .05 BTC to my Bitcoin address and they're showing up in the Received tab.  However, I *may* have deleted the entire /bitcoin directory and then re-installed -- I honestly can't remember.  I'm not too worried about the .05 BTC I have potentially lost.  What does worry me is if I do another transaction from my pool's website to my Bitcoin address, will it automatically create a new wallet.dat, or will the coins become lost in limbo since I don't already have a wallet.dat on my system?

Edit:  Nvm, found it in my \Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin\ directory.  Freakin Windows...
