Chris, I solved this one, because I copied the entire Clipmate folder using Explorer, so I simply deleted the corrupted(?) \data folder and copied back the good working \data folder that I just made before I started messing around.
What I did:
-made backup (database maintenance->zip thing)
then started to:
- export lots of clips (mostly images and excel stuff)
- delete the exported clips (reduced nbr of clips from 27k to 13k)
- emptied trashcan
- at one point in time I cud export the entire database to single files
(initially I got this error, remember)
- so that was done.
- closed CM
- launched it
- wanted to restore the database (ex zip), so I would have both the history back and also as a single file).
then I got the error.
have 2 important questions:
a) is there a limit on the number of items in the database and/or database size?
there is a limit on size/number, then...
b) if I were to create separate collections, like 2009, 2010, 2011 as a subfolder/collection under the inbox and I would then _move_ respective clips to those collections,would that make any difference?
Thank you again!
Clipmate is by far the best clipboard manager, but.. you already know that eh...
