Ini file reset on portable

Post by StewCam » 30 May 2020 01:16

Have been running Xyplorer as portable since 2008. Today for the first time ever I found that xyplorer.ini had been reset. This led to Xyplorer starting up unlicensed and minimised to a tiny window. No idea why this happened, although I did close Xyplorer on a random crash yesterday. Not likely to be due to corrupt stick, as other portable programs seem to be fine. I note that I upgraded computer to Windows 10 version 2004 yesterday. Restored ini file from backup and all now good.

OK I found data loss with another program on the stick. Turns out there were some errors on the stick, so nothing to do with XYPlorer per se.

A good reminder to keep a backup of xyplorer.ini.
