No History from earlier logins

Wed Feb 13 04:10:00 GMT 2008

I got some problem with my cygwin installation. In my .bashrc file, i export
HISTFILE to a new file. When this is done, i have a history on every login,
but when i close the shell, all data is lost. So i went to delete the
command in the bashrc, which relocates the history file. When this was done,
i had no active history left anymore, but when i touched "curser up", some
commands i did not use a long time ago appeard, but so actual ones. I found
out, that the "old command" were left in der bash_history file, which seems
to be the original file. 

What can i do to get my normal history back, also over a logout?

Thanks and sorry for my bad english
