Moving Data from Old Computer
#1
My old computer has given up the fight. So I have a new machine. Looking to move my SleepyHead Data (around 1 year's worth) over to the new machine. The export data function on the old machine worked and created a csv file. Just wasn't able to import it into the new machine? What am I missing.

The export function you're referring to is used to take the data in SleepyHead and put it into a format that can be read by a spreadsheet program.

The steps required to move your SleepyHead program is as follows:

On your old computer you will have two directories and optionally a third directory, depending on your configuration. The first two directory names begin with the words "SleepyHead". One is the program directory and the other contains the profiles and data for each user. If you import your data into SleepyHead directly from the SD card then you will not have a third directory. However if you archive your SD card's data and use this directory to load data into SleepyHead you will have a third directory.

These are the directories that you need to copy from your old computer to your new one.

I hope this may help.

The old machine was running an older version of SleepyHead. Can I bring the old data over to the new machine and use with the latest version of Sleepyhead?

Yes. Then in that case just copy over the SleepyHeadData directory and the optional directory. . . if you have one. The newer SH will ask if you wish to update the database for the new version.

Went to C:\users\office\documents\Sleepy Head Data - Testing and copied all contents over to the new C:\users\office\documents\Sleepy Head Data folder. The programs start up screen comes up listing all the fixes... At the bottom click the button that say OK, lets get on with it... Screen goes away and nothing happens.

Try the brokenGL version.


Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

Ran the brokenGL version. Message came up saying system had ability to run original faster. Started it anyway with the same results. Fixes screen and then nothing.

Decided I had messed with it enough and choose to put the SD card into the new computer to see what I could get. It downloaded 360 days worth of data off the card. So no need to pull anything from the old computer. Thanks for the suggestions any way. Thanks

That's exactly what I did when I got a new computer. Just put my SD card in computer and it copied over a years worth of data. So much easier.

What will be missing is the detailed flow data older than about 1 week. If you select earlier days in the calendar display, the Flow Data graph will disappear. If you want to preserve that information, you will need to copy the profile data as earlier described.

Good Luck!
