I left it unlocked. The new folder was P1. The old one was P0 and it has all the older files in it. Just make sure to check return to patient after download
Beside having correct time set in the Encore, you have to have the correct time set in the DreamStation. IIRC that's done from the clinical setup in the machine.
Virtually everything else, you can set in the machine through changes in the prescription through Encore and SD card. Much easier than fiddling with the buttons on the machine.
Encore will display waveform for the last night preceding the download. If you want waveform available for each day, you have to download each day. If you wait (say) 3 days than the 2 previous days (nights) will not have waveform reports available.
At least, this is my experience and I'd be happy to learn any different as this is the biggest shortcoming of Encore that I can think of.
One thing I highly recommend is to set up another account rather than just using the EncoreAdmin account. I found out the hard way if you try to log in twice in a row to the EncoreAdmin account using the wrong password you're locked out and the only way to recover is to reload the whole program. If you screw up using the account you created you can always fall back using the EncoreAdmin account.
Thanks for the information guys. Looks like I will have to set up a new account and download every day.

I use FlashPAP to load data from a FlashAir III wifi sd card in my machine to my computer and display it with SleepyHead .

Windows likes to write / add some indexing or whatever extra files to a media card. AFAIK Resmed machines refuse to work with cards with anything extra in the file system. PR does not care as long as the proper PR files are there. I use and download with the write protection off so I can use Encore's prescription delivery to the machine via the card. SO far, so good.
Everything I post on this board is nothing more than an opinion expressed by an apneak. Normally, it's based on facts and experience but sometimes, I may get things wrong or not have all the facts.
I reserve the right to change my mind. Why? Because tomorrow I may know better.
