After a long while of being away from Boinc and Seti@Home I wanted to come back in and get started again... So I did what everyone else does and downloaded Boinc and got my password and all that... been running for about 2 days now or so. This evening I went to look at what's been done and what not and accidentally aborted a task that was at like 93% and had run for about 8 hours. Is there anyway that I can either get that back to finish the job so I get credit? Or do I recieve credit for what I have done? How does this work? Sorry for the noob question, like I said been about 2 years or so lol....

If you really did abort the task then you won't get credit for it.
However your stats are not showing any tasks as having been aborted, but they may be a few hours out of date.

This is your 'Aborted by user' task (as you see - No Credit (and this is normal for Aborted tasks)):

It is not very easy to 'accidentally abort a task' as there is a question:
