Post Error: Choose a directory with a not already loaded project
on: April 18, 2017, 07:57

I am facing a serious problem:

My computer crashed when I was working in a docear mind map. After that I could not load the project anymore (Docear Version 1.2.0). The error is always "Please choose a directory with a not already loaded project".

There are a mind map for my PhD and a literature mind map (with tracking folders for new literature) in the project - both very extensive, with lots of references, and both very important to me. I would be very glad about any help!

I tried different steps, but the problem remains:
- Deleted the folder "C:\Users\[user]\.docear"
- I changed to a different computer
- Opening the mind map without loading the project. But then I can not monitor my literature folders. Opening referenced pdfs still works.
- Created a new project and a new mind map and copied the whole mind map. But then I can not open the references any more (Error: Link project://.../*.pdf nicht gefunden. (not found)). Also the literature mind map does not realize which literature is already in it or not and therefore it loads all the literature I have as being new.

Do you have any idea, why it does not load my mind map in the first place / why it says it would already be loaded? Is there anything I can do? Maybe there is an error in some file?

Thank you very much for your help!!!

It now seems to work...

I did the following:
I deleted the settings.xml file in the current project folder and pasted an old one from a back up from December from the same project.
Up to now there is only on irregularity i can detect:
An (empty?) folder "D:\home\[user name on my old windows]\Docear\projects\[project name]\literature_repository" is created even though the project is in "D:\[folder name]\[folder name]\MindMap\[project name]" ... but well, most importantly it works...

Probably this workaround is not the best ... I am always interested in other solutions!
