Recent QSO's gone after download from LoTW

Post by VE6EFR » 22 Aug 2017, 16:43

I just tried to do a download from LoTW. Once that finished my recent QSO's vanished. It is showing 0 records found. Any idea what happened and how to get them back?

Thank you in advance,

Jeff

Have you tried clicking the refresh button at the bottom of the recent QSO window

At the lower right of the main screen does it show the database path it's connected to!

I've tried to refresh and it still doesn't show my contacts. As for the lower right corner it is not showing the database path. I tried going to File, then open database and finally I selected the database file. It shows loading database however nothing shows up. Still shows 0 records found.

If you have been keeping backups I suggest that you create a new database and import the last ADIF backup file.

Thanks, Terry. That is what I ended up doing. Just odd that the log file went toes up for some reason.

Sometimes for no apparent reason a database gets corrupted this is why we always stress the importance of auto backups!
