Yesterday I noticed that all my contacts are gone.
Some days ago I had to hard-reset my PC while eM Client was open.
At application-restart it showed a “database check”-Window: checking Mails, checking …
The last line of that Window was something like “none” or “not found”.
I saw it, but did not care…
Well, as it turns out, that last line seems to have indicated that there are no contacts to be
repaired - which is wrong.
Because of that loss I snooped around a bit in “…/AppData / eM Client”
I found this:
What are these folders for?
each of them again contains similar folders and Data-Files…
since I was looking for my lost contacts, I finally found this:
(one more contact_data.dat was at AppData/roaming/em Client/ but broken -> deleted it)
The Application seems to have multiple contacts-databases? what for??
Especially since one Application-Crash is enough to wipe all Contacts?
None of them is a “backup-File” or something?
that is disappointing.
Thanks for any ideas…
