    I am using Rssowl for about 1 month
    five days ago suddenly it broked and didn't work anymore
    i think it was because amount of database and when i cut old rss.db and runed program again it worked as good as old time
    my question is:

    because it contains of a lot info and i really need it
    or any other solution to use it?

    Hello.

    RssOwl uses object-oriented db4o database. This means you have to use java if you want to move data from it to somewhere else. To move to sql you have to write a script yourself.

    Check the stuff in [FAQ]http://www.rssowl.org/help#item_6) first. If this does not help and your database is very large, you can try running 64 bit rssowl.

    Yeah, error log would be nice.

    Also, are you sure that your problem repeats with backups? What os do you use? How large is your db?

    I mean have you tried putting backup db's instead of the old db? You db folder should have a couple of db backups. Just rename them.

    1.5 g is large enough to have problems... If you have a 64-bit machine and OS, you can try running 64-bit RSSOwl. I've posted my build here.
