Do you have backups or source control?  If NameMapping USED to be there and isn't now, somehow it got removed.  You may need to restore from some sort of backup at this time.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Just simply back up the file... either using a source control tool like GIT or TFS or by actually backing up the file using a backup utility on the machine.

We have TFS but I do not know how to back it up with TFS?

I had to use the older version of name ampping file that was saved in a different location.

Now we have a Git Repo for QA to save the Test complete files with versioning through TFS. Thsi will save the name mapping file with dates and will have versions.
