File Converter gets empty

Ragnar Tryggvason Updated by Ragnar Tryggvason

File Converter can get empty if the disk space gets full or if the server shuts down unexpectedly. File Converter stores backup files each day so it is a simple task to restore last configuration.

  1. Close File Converter
  2. Navigate to VDV_File_Converter\data\backup which contains a backup of the configuration files.
  3. Open the latest file and see if it contains all the lines/files you are converting.
    If it is empty, continue to open the files until you find one that has all of your lines in it(start with the newest file).
  4. Rename this file and remove the date at the end. Name should be vdv_convert_files.ini
  5. Move this file to VDV_File_Converter\data and replace the old one.
  6. Start File converter
