Database Lost After Crash

Post by snailtail » Thu May 07, 2009 6:37 pm

Hi

The other day MM crashed very badly and I had to reboot, after which the database was lost, the file was missing from my user profile, so I rebuilt the database again (740gb of music) which worked fine. However the next time I started MM that database was gone also.

What is happening?

Which version of MediaMonkey and Windows do you use?

Did restarting again after that solve the problem?

MediaMonkey 3.0.3.1183
Windows XP SP3

No a restart did not fix it, the database filesize is still around the 130k mark - when it was working the DB was approx 200MB

I can only suggest trying to create a debug log as described in the Bug Report forum, but I'm not sure if it would find the reason the database get's deleted.

Are you sure that no outside sources can cause this or that maybe the hard drive has bad sectors?
