stupid mistake, messed up my Oscar data
#1
stupid mistake, messed up my Oscar data
I stupidly tried to run sleepyhead against my Oscar data (not intentionally, I just wasn't paying attention)  Dielaughing  and now Oscar says it is Sleepyhead data and needs to be imported into Oscar.

Am I now screwed? Would it actually do a valid import back into Oscar?

If I am hosed, I found a BACKUP directory: .../OSCAR_Data-Unknown/Profiles/[myname]/ResMed_23161418770. Is there anything I can do with that to recover?

Also, I can't just reimport because I got a new (used, loaner) cpap from my provider and without even thinking about it, stuck my SD card into it, and it proceeded to wipe out all my data.

I'd welcome any helpful advice, Thanks in advance!

Fred

RE: stupid mistake, messed up my Oscar data
Let OSCAR do the import conversion.  Databases are designed a little differently.  

In thinking about it,  SleepyHead should have its own data directory named, SleepyHeadData. Likewise, OSCAR has its own named, OSCAR_Data.

Under the Oscar_Data/Profile/Backup folder is all the data from your last good Oscar session. Copy that data to a safe location or extra SD card. It can be used to restore Oscar to the last set of data imported.
