User Library Just Had Twins

Recommended Posts

Ive been using chief all day and just came back in the office, opened the same plan I was working in before and when I went to the library I noticed every folder in my user library had a twin??????    Anybody ever seen this?  Exact duplicate with same material in each folder.   No even sure how to fix it other than delete all the duplicates.

I think most commonly that will happen if you click on the user library in your Chief Architect data folder.  It tells Chief to load that library.

I started deleting each of the duplicate folders from the library and it crashed.  Always something

Between sessions there was a full system back up including the data files. Maybe that did something.  Never has before.

Sound similar to an issue I had in X6- lost all user libraries.

Fortunately had all backed up with Carbonite.

Had to contact tech support to get it all reloaded though.

Might try them next- Best of luck.

I have had this happen about four times, I always backup (export) the user library after I have added new items to it then delete the doubled up one and import the backup

I have contacted Tech support but they didn't know what was wrong or how it happened

I hadn't rebooted before deleting the duplicates... Didnt know I should have.  It made a mess of everything.  Fortunately, I have two onsite back ups, DB and Carbonite.  Just by completely replacing the data folder with one of the back up all is ok about about 30 mins
