Retrieving calendar files off broken laptop hardrive?

Post by Moonshaker » Sat Apr 25, 2020 6:57 pm

Hi Dan!

I recently had a laptop give the ghost.
I was able to take the hardrive out however, which is totally fine, so I am able to access everything that was on my old laptop.
I can't seem to find the files for my calendar however. Can you advise where these might be found,
and what file format they would be?
I'd really love to transfer them to my new laptop!
Thank you!

best,
Julian.

Hi Julian, welcome to the forums. On your old drive, look in the "\Users\YourLoginName\AppData\Local\VueSoft\VueMinder\Backup" folder. If you didn't change the default location where backups are stored, you should see some backup files in that folder. They have a .vbackup extension.

If you're able to find the backup files, click the "File -> Restore Data" menu command in VueMinder. Next, click the "Browse" button and open the most recent backup file on your old drive.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Dan,
brilliant! thank you so much, just sorted it out there, all restored! Fantastic!

And apologies for the double post! I googled the forum and the fact the result took me to page 4 of the forum (which I didn't realise, just assumed it would land me on the first page!) meant that I thought I hadn't made the original post, and so posted again! Ha ha.

Anyway, thanks again for your help, love VueMinder, it's a big help! Good to get organized again!

All the best, keep up the good work,

Julian.
