Re: recent Windows 10 upgrade - data loss
I had a similar thing happen. The logging file can't be found and I had to register all my programs again and reset all the settings. All the sites I regularly visit no longer have their passwords stored in Google. This created a mess I could do without!
I use a thumb drive but it was 2 days old and during that time I worked the PA QSO Party and two rare DX expeditions. Fortunately, I uploaded all those QSOs to LoTW so I was able to retrieve my missing QSOs.
Here is my problem: I have a copy of the PA QSO Party with all the serial numbers, counties, power, etc. LoTW doesn't give all that info. I also have all those QSOs in AC Log but minus the counties, and serial numbers which aren't so important.
I'd like to import an ADIF file from my PA QSO party log but how do I handle all those PA QSO Party entries that are already in AC Log but which lack the counties? Should I delete all of them first and then import the ADIF file or is there a better way? I have about 250 QSOs from the PAQP.
All I can say is thank God I got in the habit of backing my log up regularly to LoTW, Clublog, and my thumb drive or I'd be in serious trouble right now! LoTW and Clublog are good for retrieving data but they don't store all the info a thumb drive does.
