New to Gramps. Forgive me if this is covered already. Mailing lists are a
little difficult to search.
Started using Gramps a couple of days ago. Initially started with the
portable version because I need to work on it in two different locations,
but I had a few problems with it that didn't manifest in the regular
This morning I copied the database folder into my Google Drive folder
thinking I could work on it in two locations. I noted where it was located
in Edit, Preferences, Family Tree, which in Win 7 Pro is C:\Users\[user
name]\AppData\Roaming\gramps\grampsdb. I then copied the grampsdb folder to
the Google Drive, restarted Gramps and changed to database path to the new
location and then restarted Gramps.
It opens and People are there but there's nothing under Families and
Relationships. So I changed it back.
Database is locked. Restarted computer and it's still locked. Attempted to
have Gramps unlock it and it did, but the data is missing. Tried to repair
the database and that didn't work.
My most recent backup is missing about an hour of work.
Any chance I'll get it back?
