All my feeds disappeared!

Help

  • I use RSSOwl every day, and when I started it up today, there was the default startup screen with the big green arrow and when I clicked it, it went to the default "sample" feeds.

    I am subscribed to a ton of blogs and will be greatly upset if I have to go resubscribe. Is there any way to retrieve my feeds? This has never happened before!

    Thanks in advance.

    • I found an error log in the .rssowl folder in my user folder. It contained this, I'm posting below.

      I have since upgraded to version 1.2.2 but my feeds are still not loading.

      • I am sorry to hear that. So you where using RSSOwl 1.2.1 before?

        In RSSOwl 1.2.2 I added a feature that would restore your feeds whenever there was a crash before.
