Indicators modification lost after MC update

Postby arjfca » 25 Oct 2015

Hello

I install the latest MC 64 version. While installing, the process stopped working and I had to closed it after about 1 hours

After, I restart and selected the repair option.

After all work done, and restarting MC, I realized that I have lost small modification that I had done on a specific indicator few months ago. MC had been closed and restart many since without any flaw. So it was not an un-compiled indicator.

When repairing, does it used a previously saved files so it reload old files?
If so, can i found back the file using a tool to locate erased files

How could we prevent a loss like that?

1. Always make a backup before upgrade
2. Make sure all the MultiCharts processes are completed (ie exited) before upgrade.
3. Always make weekly backup
4. Always make a backup before upgrade


Harddisk is cheap.
Using the AuotHotKey, you can make the backup a one click process.
