Rescan and Sleepyhead: Transferring data to new computer
#1
The laptop I am using is going to be re-imaged. I would like to preserve the old Resmed data as the SD card has been reformatted since the previous data was uploaded.

Where is the profile and data stored and is it as simple as copying and pasting the data to the appropriate areas? I also tweaked my profile so I get more info to show.

Additionally, I know with Sleepyhead it saves the data in a particular directory so importing that is never an issue, but I am not sure about your profile. If I can help it, I don't want to change my SH settings all over again.

Thanks

for ResScan on my W7 machine, the file folder is located at
C:\Users\Public\Documents\ResMed\ResScan3\Patients\Mongo, Just

The profile data is also in that folder -- just copy it the second machine.

Hi Hmm888,

Quote:Additionally, I know with Sleepyhead it saves the data in a particular directory so importing that is never an issue, but I am not sure about your profile. If I can help it, I don't want to change my SH settings all over again.

Like Mongo, this answer assumes a Windows laptop.

Short answer: The profile data is stored in a file called Profile.xml within the named profile folder.

Unlike some MS apps, sleepyhead keeps it simple and the user profile data is kept in the same directory structure as the user data. Within that same named profile folder are the machine-specific folders which contain all the data for that user (if you have imported data from more than one machine, they will each have their own folder). Save the Profiles folder with all its content and you will have all your profiles and imported data.

For example here's where I find my sleepyhead data ...

(Sleepyhead version: C:\Program Files\SleepyHead-Testing-0.9.8-1-Windows-64bit\SleepyHead-OpenGL.exe)

Data folders:

C:\Users\Saldus\Documents\SleepyHeadData-Testing\Profiles

C:\Users\Saldus\Documents\SleepyHeadData-Testing\Profiles\SaldusMiegas
.. Profile.xml is in this folder

C:\Users\Saldus\Documents\SleepyHeadData-Testing\Profiles\SaldusMiegas\ResMed_23160245799
.. all the data for this machine is within this folder and its subfolders


To move to a new/rebuilt machine, I would save the entire Profiles folder and restore it the same location after your machine is rebuilt. Then you should be good to pick up right where you left off.

One more place to copy... report templates.

"%LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\ResMed\ResScan3\ReportSchemes"

Note that Program Files (x86) is for 32 bit programs on a 64 bit machine, if you have a 32 bit OS, the " (x86)" does not belong.
