Yesterday, Mike and others offered some valuable advice about how to recover after a memory failure on my laptop. Unfortunately, I am having problems following this advice.
Mike said I could revert to snapshot using the following: File > Backup/Restore > Revert to Snapshot. When I go to File > Backup/Restore there is no Revert to Snapshot option. For my one-name study project, the options are
For my other two projects all options are available [not greyed out] but still no Revert to Snapshot.
I searched the Internet and found that I could, alternatively, Revert to Snapshot from the Snapshot Manager accessed from the Project Window.
More worrying, if I go to the Project Window my one-name study project does not appear. Only my other two projects and the sample Project are visible. My one-name study project is stored in My Documents\Family Historian Projects. I am as certain as I can be that it was there before I switched to my new laptop but cannot say with any certainty that it has been there since the move.
If I go to More Tasks in the Project Window, I can see no Snapshot Manager option. I can find nothing about Snapshots in the printed manual I have for version 5. I am running version 6. Are Snapshots only available in version 7?
I only installed Family Historian on my new laptop a few weeks ago and made no changes to the installation setting for backups. I have checked and Autosave is set to every five minutes. I can see nothing about Snapshots. The File Load/Save settings in Preferences for all my projects [including the Sample project] are the same.
I have found the Snapshot files on disk but there is only one for my one-name study project. It is dated 1 Jan 2021. The same Snapshot is the only one I have on my backed up data [on an external drive] from before and after my swap to my new laptop. Snapshots appear to have been taken when I have used my other projects.
I am at a loss at how to proceed.
