4.00.42 - Contents of \Storage Card\PathAway disappeared!

Postby TheSnake » Tue Aug 15, 2006 5:31 pm

Hi Scott,

I was entering some points directly from the map, adding descriptions etc. On clicking the 'Add Point' icon for the fifth point, PathAway closed and I found myself back on the 'Today' screen. On re-entering PathAway my points were displayed but no map. On further investigation I found the entire contents of \Storage Card\PathAway had disappeared, including all my maps and the secondary PathAway database!

Apart from that (!) 4.00.42 seems to be a great improvement over previous versions especially with regard to menu/item selection response.

Further to the problem above...

Trying to copy maps back into \Storage Card\PathAway results in the error message 'Cannot copy <filename> : Access Denied'

I've checked the folder attributes but these are no different to the other folders on the storage card, and I can copy files to these folders without problems.

It seems as if the read only/hidden attribute has been set on the folder contents but not on the folder itself.

Just wanted to say that similar thing happened to me also. One day the memory card that contained maps was empty. I had not removed the SD card from PDA nor used any other programs other than PathAway. I put the "empty" SD card into card reader connected to a PC and indeed no files were visible but, free space was reported as there was something on the card, so probably the disk's file allocation table was garbaged.

We have not been able to reproduce this at all. If anyone can find a repeatable situation that is attributable to PathAway, we'll fix it.

I know this thread is quite old. But the same thing happens on my Loox N560 as well. Windows Mobile 5, Pathaway 4 Standard (newest version). Anybody else?
