Hi there I am a docear user from the first minute... even though I had a long break between master thesis and PHd.

I improted my old docear files into the new version...which worked quite well.
I made a new with all my incoming papers.

I had another long break: After of 4 Month without using docear and tried do start docear. It said something similar to text (See attchement 1) which I get when I try to restore the file by copying it into my default folder and change the ending to .mm. After following the error options the file is empty and has like 4kB (instead of 700kB) and the .bib is at like 1kB and empty.

The same thing happend with the files wich I originally generated with one of the first docear versions when I first tried to open them. However, when I tried to restore the .mm by copying it form the .backup folder at least its content is there, but all my links to my .pdfs are gone 🙁 ....

I tried a lot of things deinstalling / installing, shifting folders and so on but I cannot recreat the links nor the . Now I have a lot of projects but non of thems is able to link my filed. I did not try to open it with a older version of docear since at least the .incoming was generated with that version and the other ones work (kind of).

I sent my backup folder in attachement 2.

I would like to mak a new project which connects all my files. And since I am super desperate and really dont know what else to do I offer 100€ for anyone who solves my problem...(I would send you my hole phd folder and or have a online conference.)

Thanks so much I am really thankfull for any hint which brings my closer to my files...

Regards Clemens
