Versions 1.0 and 1.0a of Microsoft Schedule+ for Windows allow automatic recovery of a calendar file if it detects an abnormality in the file upon starting Schedule+. If an abnormality is found, Schedule+ creates a new file named RECOVER.CAL in the directory where the SCHEDULE.EXE file resides.
To view the recovered information from the RECOVER.CAL file, do the following:
- From the Windows Program Manager, choose Run from the File menu.
- On the Run line, type SCHDPLUS.INI and press ENTER.
- Under the [Microsoft Schedule+] line, type the following line:
- Save the changes and exit from Notepad.
- Find the <username>.CAL file on your local hard disk drive, where <username> is your Schedule+ user name.
- Rename the <username>.CAL file <username>.OLD.
- Rename the RECOVER.CAL file <username>.CAL.
- Start Schedule+. When it tells you that it cannot find your calendar file in the location specified, point it to the file you renamed in step 7. Do not make a new calendar file.
As much information as possible is now displayed on the screen in Schedule+. Although some information may be lost, Schedule+ has recovered as much information as possible.
To accept this file and all information written within as your new calendar file, do the following:
- From the Schedule+ Options menu, choose General Options.
- Remove the "X" in the Startup Offline option box. Schedule+ will now attempt to merge the changes (if any) in the new <username>.CAL file with your calendar file on the server.
If you run Schedule+ off the network and if the Schedule+ executable file resides in a read-only directory on a server, Schedule+ will not be able to create a RECOVER.CAL file.
