BS 3 deleted a recipe
« on: November 17, 2019, 03:56:45 PM »
So I just copied a recipe from my cloud storage to a local folder. Looked to go okay and then it shut down, though it was supposedly still occupying memory, and both the cloud copy and the local copy are gone. Tried a restore, no go. On windows 10, up to date...

Where is it?

The best way to get a response from Brad is to write to him directly.  His contact information can be found on the main BeerSmith web site.

I have had that happen when I left my computer on overnight with BeerSmith running.  Microsoft ran an update and *bing* recip folders went missing.  I followed the restore procedure Brad has outlined in his blog to get them back.  The next time microsoft warned of an update, I backed up everything and let BeerSmith running.  Problem duplicated itself.

So now I close BeerSmith when not actively using it and have set Microsoft windows to update only at midnight.

I have not had a problem since then.

Thanks Oginme for your post and comments about windows updates.

I recently lost a bunch of folder/recipes(and who knows what else).  I think I got them back from the backup archive.

I do notice there are times after a windows update beersmiths complains about another copy of beersmith still running when I restart it.  Going to start closing beersmith when I am not actively using it.
