Sleepyhead - Opens Wrong Default Data Folder EVERY TIME!
#11
Last nights data imported correctly from wireless SD card this morning and imported into Sleepyhead. Retaining all my previous data intact. I can see myself not updating Sleepyhead in the future as CPAP becomes routine and wonder how Flashpap will work on large number of uploads. My prior SD card only has about a months data. Perhaps the older data is discarded by the ResMed A10?

ResMed will retain about a years worth of data on the SD card. FlashPap only downloads what it does not have. Honestly I have not checked to see if my old data is still on the card. I'm over a year now on this machine. I'll check in the AM.

fyi - Sleepyhead doesn't have/use any other data folders.

Although, my machine is set up as a dev machine and I could have modified permissions that others didn't. Having said that, Program Files and Program Files (x86) are protected folders. If a program modifies a file in one of those folders, and you are not running the program as Administrator, m$ will store your changes in the VirtualStore.

You can find the VirtualStore by pressing Winkey-R or start > Run and typing in %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore

I'm confused after reading your post #8.

When importing data,the SH dialog states it found "A ResMed file structure for a Autoset (23151xxxxxx) located at G:" The ResMed file structure is actually located under the Profiles folder which is in the SleepyHead_Data folder as indicated in the initial screen from SH.

1. To retain the link to the initial profile under SleepyHead_Data the FlashPap app would have to import data into the SleepyHead_Data folder instead of the FlashPap Data folder.

I choose to move the Profiles into the FlashPap Data folder which achieves the same thing but is not the right way. The correct way should be as in 1. (copying data to the SleepyHead_Data folder.)

Thanks for the hint about AppRoot key, but this wouldn't require changing if data from FlashPap is loaded into SleepyHead_Data.

If you look at your SD card, there is no Profiles folder. When I say, and when you see, "ResMed file structure" mentioned in Sleepyhead importer it is the raw data from your cpap machine, what is stored on your machine's SD card not what Sleepyhead stores after you import the data. Those are two different file structures.

Flashpap copies files from your SD card. It is as if you loaded the SD card into your computer and copied the contents to some other folder with file explorer. Flashpap doesn't do any interpretation of it and Sleepyhead cannot read it as is to display your graphs.

Whether you tell FlashPap to put the files into the same folder as Sleepyhead-Data, not a good idea, or to some other folder doesn't matter. Sleepyhead has to import this data and will interpret/convert it and store it in its own format before it can show you the graphs.

I've never had to do that but okay.

That isn't safe. It may work for you, but understand if Mark decides to have his installer wipe out the Sleepyhead data folder when you uninstall, it may wipe out the folder without regards to what you put in it. You will lose your data. (except for what is still on your FlashAir of course).

AlanE thanks for your responses to my problem. I plan to start a new thread about Sleepyhead Profiles which is likely source of my problems. Not sure where SH expects the Profile with the ResMedxxxxxxx,Journal,channels etc files must be stored. Changing the data location to point to my downloaded files from Flashair card will always result in SH asking to create a new Profile. I want to maintain my old ResMedxxxxxx data of past processed imports.
