Channel disappeared after upgrade to v 7.0 alpha 2


#1

So, made an upgrade to 7.0 alpha 2.
But then in crashed, and now Tribler asks me to create a new channel…

Any way to gain access to my old channel (instead of creating a new one)?

Atm Tribler (v7) is still processing all the channels, mine is not (jet) cached/downloaded.

Kind regards
Aldo

Could you provide some more information about the crash? You should get a popup containing a message with more information about what went wrong.


#3

I think I send it right away, did not read…

Where could I find it?
(windows 10)

Also, after a restart of my windows I got this message:

And then starts Tribler v6.5.2, my old version instead of v7.0

Kind regards,
Aldo

Hi,

Your old database should be backed up in the AppData\Roaming\\.Tribler\sqlite. Do you see the backup file there?


#5

Hoi

Yes, I see a couple of backup files there.
The selected ones are the oldest.
Any documentation to use these files instead as the current ones?

Kind regards
Aldo

Replacing the files directly under the sqlite directory with your selected files should theoretically work. Please store the selected files in a secure location to prevent data lose.


#7

Yeay, I thought so…
But this is showing up:

Will make an backup of those files and then delete everything that has to do with Tribler, and start again with Tribler v 7.

i’ll keep you posted.

Kind regards
Aldo
