Lost Log File?

QSO logging software for the Mac

Lost Log File?

Unread postby dje4816 » Sun 1. Nov 2015, 11:27

I had to reload the OS for my MacBook Air. The system promised to save all my files. However, when I run RumLog now, it doesn't load my log. The system saved a file called allops.rlog which I assumed was my log file, but RumLog cannot load this. Does this mean my log is lost?

I have an ADIF file backup, but it only runs up to October 6. I made a lot of QSOs after that which I need to restore. Any help gratefully received.

What do you mean with " it doesn't load my log" ? Any error message? Do you have tried Menu-->Logbook-->Open file? This could be a Gate keeper or Sandbox problem.

Tom, Thanks for the reply.

1. When I open Rumlog, there are no QSOs listed at all.
2. There is an error message across the top of the page saying "The file couldn't be opened."
3. There is a little extra window with the message "No open log file! Use the logbook menu to open or create a file."
4. I used the logbook menu to try to open a file, but none are listed.
5. By searching I can find my old ADIF files (most recent is October 6th).
6. By searching I can find a file named "All Ops.rlog". Some of my ADIF files were named All Ops, so there must be a connection.

I'm not familiar with Gatekeeper and Sandbox terms, so don't know how to use them.

Hoping you can help!

Navigate to your logbook file "All Ops.log" What happens?

If it don't open, e-mail me the file please. I will check.
