If you didn't back it up you will need to create a new one.

I've done this before as well. If you did not save your /.gnupg directory in your /home directory, you need to create a new one.

This is fine. You just need to let anyone who has your old key you have a new one.

I create different one for every computer I own. I have like eight of them.

All you need to do is go to System --> Prefernces --> Password and Encryption

Then go to New and make a new key.

Can you help with this problem?
