Macbook restarted and now project is lost?

I was importing photos into Tropy when my Macbook Air restarted itself. After the restart I tried to reopen the project, but it came up with an error message about the sqlite database being damaged (?). I have the error log, but it would be too long to copy it in here.

Ok, I tried to open it again and this is the message that appears: SQLITE_CORRUPT: database disk image is malformed

Did this happen to anyone else, and how did you fix it? (Or could it be fixed?)

Hi,
we suppose that Tropy was still writing to the project file while the restart happened. Could you upload the project file? We’ll try to fix it.

Hi,
Apologies, just saw this. After the initial panic, I remembered that I backed up the whole manuscript folder, including the tropy project file onto my USB drive the day before. I deleted the project file from the computer and copied in the one from my USB. That did the trick, and thankfully only lost a few hours of work.

I’m glad to hear that you found a solution!
