Getting Calendar Data Off Unbootable Drive

Post by Big.Moe » Mon Aug 04, 2014 6:18 pm

Hi,
Had to replace my client's hard drive and had to reinstall his Vueminder. The old drive is un-bootable, but I currently have it in my shop system and can access his files. Unfortunately, he did not run the backup function in the program, so I cannot restore his info through that process.

Is there a data file or the like that I can transfer to the new PC to reload his calendar events?

Hi Big Moe, the default folder for VueMinder's data files will depend on which version of Windows was used previously.

WinXP
\Documents and Settings\YourLoginName\Local Settings\Application Data\VueSoft\VueMinder

Vista/7/8/8.1
\Users\YourLoginName\AppData\Local\VueSoft\VueMinder

To recover that data, use the "Restore Data" command on the File menu. Browse to the folder on the other drive and open either the latest backup in the "Backups" subfolder (if present) or the "CalendarInfo.bin" file.

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