Importing from New SD card while preserving old data
#1
This question has probably been answered but I have not found it in a search.

My 2 month old Restmed Airsense 10 "rolled over and played dead" ... actually was dead! Now I have data in Sleepyhead from the old SD card (except last day 3/18). THe DME refused to put the old card into the new machine or give me the old card.

My question: Will sleephead load the data from the new card for 3/19 on without overwriting or damaging the old data (2/8 - 3/17), 3/18 missing. I want to just continue the data (2/8 - 3/17, missing 3/18, 3/19 ...). Do I just proceed as before to load from the new card?

Yes! . . . I know, I'm getting a little long winded.

Huhsign Not sure if I understand your reply.

Yes, SleepyHead will load the data without overwriting the prior data,so long as you don't have data from previous dates on the card. SleepyHead will recognize the new machine serial number and make an entry on the Statistics page. If you're in doubt, create a new user profile and import the data there first to see what dates are there.

Thanks. That is what I need to know. Good idea to create another profile and test. It is a new machine so there should not be any "old" data.
