I'm new at using the Sleepyhead software and I have a question. This may be a very "dumb question" with an obvious answer. (I admit I can be "dumb" sometimes...)
I understand that I'm suppose to "lock the card" before inserting it into my computer. Should I "Unlock" the card when I insert it back into my CPAP machine? Will the missing days be restored to the card?
The reason I ask is I've only been using "Sleephead" since Dec 27th and tonight wanted to check the past few days But, I didn't see any new "data". The SD card was "locked" in the machine since Dec 27th.
I'm wondering if that is the reason for the lack of new data? It feels like a stupid question...(I have other medical stuff that affects cognitive and memory...at times). Help please...
The only stupid question is the one which isn't asked.
You must have the card unlocked when in the machine, otherwise it can't write any data to it.
It's recommended that you have the card locked in the computer to prevent the computer writing unwanted volume information to the card (which could confuse the machine).
I'm not totally sure about the Remstar, but I expect it will update most of the missing data to the card when you insert it unlocked.

Thank you Paul!
I'll check it again in the morning to see if I have the missing days...
