Tilp calculator backup corrupt
« on: October 10, 2013, 11:21:27 pm »
Hello I a while ago I had to take a test test required no programs on my calc so I did a tilp full backup and then did a full reset.  Using group file manager I can open the ti backup file but every group and appvar seems to be corrupted  <_<

So my question is have I lost everything that I had saved as groups or is there a way to recover the data?  If so is hard is it to do because it may not be worth it.

Thanks ahead of time.

Hmm... that's not very user-friendly, although hopefully infrequent.

What version of TILP and GFM did you use when making the backup, and what version are you using now ? What calculator model (maybe 84+SE, if your profile's picture is any indication ?) and OS version(s) ?
Also, even if these are less relevant for debugging that particular problem than the TILP / GFM and calculator OS versions, I'd like to know the remaining usual basic pieces of information:
* the cable type you used for transfer;
* while at it, the computer OS type and version.

You should attach the backup file to a post, so that people can have a look at it ;)

calculator: TI-84 plus SE

gfm version: 1.03
tilp version: 1.16

I used "directlink" (the usb cable that came with the calc)
I have the 2.55MP os version (I think that is the latest but I am too lazy to look)

One more thing that I should mention.  I run tilp in linux.  When I extracted the files using gfm all programs were fine (not axe paser backups) and even the axe parser application.  Although,  I could not open the groups with gfm or TiConnect (on windows) but I could transfer them using TiConnect (not tilp).

I posted the only group file that I really care about.  (It is my first "real" axe parser program.  :))

EDIT: added the wrong file  ;D
