Recovering All Times Records ?
« on: January 31, 2018, 09:01:11 PM »
My All Times Records have been partly corrupted.
The WDISPLAY.INI file has only 2018 records, but the data used to be since 2008/
Any way to recover those records ?

yes
either use those from a back up of the wdisplay.ini file (e.g in the databackup folder and in the zip file there)
or if your logfiles are OK then go action, convert WD logfiles to data files, and tick convert all, and then click on OK

note,you would need to replace the all time records section in the wdisplay.ini file from a back up when WD is not running

The problem seems to be in the backup too, I opened the INI file as a notepad a read the records line by line - they are corrupted.

Brian,
For some years, I've been in the habit of taking occasional screenshots of All-time & Year-to-date records.  If something goes awry and my records are destroyed, I find it very easy to restore the records manually whereas trawling through backup files can take a long time and is not always successful.

This practice has saved my bacon on many occasions over the years when a sensor has failed or something goes wrong with WD.
