Re: Updated to New Version - Lost Old Tracks??

Hello,

Unfortunately the misadventure Obelisk to upgrade from O2.5 to O322 is common. Many people never back up their tracks and roads. I have often seen this issue raised in the French forum. If my memory is good, 2.5 to 3.2.2, there is no solution. the file navobject.xml did not exist in O2.5.

Gilletarom...
Interesting, I have never heard of it until now. Maybe you can alert us of problems of this gravity appearing in France next time...
And I'm more than sure that we used navobj.xml in 2.5.0 - it was actually implemented long before that.

Pavel

Re: Updated to New Version - Lost Old Tracks??

Hello Pavel,

There are not too long a French sailor, who did not used to do backups, lost his tracks and routes from 2.5 to 3.2.2. This is not OpenCPN malfunctioning. It is the user who is not very efficient. This is particularly why I mention it.

The solution would be during an upgrade, with replacement of the original data, to rename the ini and xml files without destroying them.

For xml files, if you say they already existed in version 2.5, I do not insist. My memory deceives me, no doubt.

B.R. Gilletarom.

Re: Updated to New Version - Lost Old Tracks??

I just lost my track, but I think it is because I was using opencpn for a few hours, then when entering the anchorage, opened another instance so I could view raster and vector charts at the same time, and this action somehow overwrote the track. I forget which instance I closed first. Should be possible to track down. Also if opencpn crashes or is killed, I believe it does not store the current track. I think there are more cases.

A "normal" crash will not corrupt the track - at least those we had didn't.

Re: Updated to New Version - Lost Old Tracks??

Hello,

There are two years old, I had a problem like this because the battery in my PC was too low. (That day, I thought my PC was connected to the batteries of the boat, but there was a false electrical contact)

B.R.
