Retrieve data after power outage
« on: September 29, 2017, 05:42:12 PM »
This morning i had a power outage. When i restarted my pc i had to set up my Davis Vue again in WD. My station records are gone and it shows records only as being achieved today. I was creating a backup folder each day. What is the procedure in order to get WD back to the way it was before the outage settings and records wise?

Regards

Mike

Hi,
find the last good backup of the wdisplay.ini file before the outage, and with WD closed copy it back to the wdisplay folder. When WD starts all the settings and records should have returned.
Is FTP working OK as those settings are stored in the registry.

Thanks for that, Working fine now with data records back.
