Hello,I have realy problem.
My file have ctx format.File is on a flash drive.
What happened …
I always open this file on Windows(10) and Linux machines.And all was well.Cherry tree version(win10-0.37.6|linux-0.37.4)
But yesterday Windows somehow rewrote my file to 0. File Size changed to 0 bytes.
The Windows can managed to restore the master file ctx.But the rest of the files with the prefix ~ ,looks like this (ctx ~, ctx ~~, ctx ~~~) .were erased to 0.
What led to the fact that the database password is no longer suitable, at the same time it is of course true.
Help! Who knows what can be done! I would be grateful for any help,file is very important…7 February 2017 at 00:04 #124144
If you can restore the .ctx, forget about the .ctx~ that are just past versions… I would like to understand what could cause this, I’ve never been able to figure out 🙁7 February 2017 at 01:57 #124149
I thought that ctx~ file can break the access to the file,because password does not work.It’s my mistake.I understand it.
But why then the password on the file is no longer suitable?
And what can be done?7 February 2017 at 10:26 #124150
Try to open the .ctx file directly with 7zip and report here7 February 2017 at 11:50 #124152
Ok.I install 7zip file manager on Windows machine and try to open …
But was unable to open the file as an archive .
I do not understand what to do with 7zip?7 February 2017 at 16:28 #124153
Why a password longer fit?
What can be the reason for this?7 February 2017 at 22:39 #124154
You open the .ctx file with 7zip. The .ctx file is merely a 7zip archive, you can also rename it to .7z, when you open it he asks for the password and the extraction gives you a .ctb
If the password doesn’t work anymore it is likely that the archive was corrupted.9 February 2017 at 09:17 #124157
If the password doesn’t work anymore it is likely that the archive was corrupted.
This scares me.
In terms of the possibility of archive corruption, is it safer to switch to .ctb or .ctd?9 February 2017 at 11:54 #124158
Sure, while unfortunately few users had lost data with a password protected document on windows OS, this never happened with a non password protected document or on linux.
The password protected documents on windows rely on 7za.exe from 7zip.
Having said so, I’m personally using password protected documents on both linux and windows and never experienced this data loss issue9 February 2017 at 12:14 #124159
I don’t really need the password protection.
So I switched to .ctb for now.
Is there any practival difference between the SQL and the XML formats?9 February 2017 at 22:23 #124162
The xml always reads and writes everything while sql reads and writes only what required so it is better for larger documents
