Corrupted .plw file

Postby mpoprawski » Fri Jun 08, 2012 1:27 pm

I was recording data when power went down and the computer switched off. After restart I've realized that data in .plw file is corrupted and cannot be displayed. Does anybody know what to do to recover or fix corrupted file?
Data logger: TC-08 (USB), WIN XP.

corrupted file lives here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/51821494/07%20 ... rupted.plw

Thanks,

Maciej

Hi Maciej,

Do you have a good data log file that was created with the same settings?

Alternatively, providing you have not changed any settings you can save the settings file from within PicoLog Recorder by clicking File -> Save as... and choosing 'Settings files (*.pls)' and saving the file.

For 99% the following file has the same settings:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/51821494/07%20 ... 202012.plw

Hope it helps.

Thanks,

Is there any chance to recover that file? Or any information about the format of .plw files?
Cheers,

Hi Tom,

I have created an e-mail support ticket for you so you should have received an e-mail requesting the files to be sent through.
