First, Wondering about Forum:
OK, folks, I know it looks like I'm a dumb newbie who just doesn't know how to do things the right way. However, your website wouldn't take my original user name and password, so I had to re-register with a new name and password in order to get in here. Since I've owned and updated ClipMate since like version 3 or something that far back, and have belonged to the Forum all that time, could someone tell me what happened? Was it something I said?
[Later, in another part of my brain: OK, I see what happened. Please forgive my stupidity?]
Last, Problem with InBox:
Yeah, I would have tried to search the archives for an answer to this problem but was unable to get any response to my search. So, rather than telling me to read the archives, please take pity on me and direct me to an answer for this problem. I'm old and on my last nerve.
[Even later . . . once you fix this problem of hacking, Chris, will there be access to the archives?]
More often than I can bear, when I am moving clips from the InBox to an appropriate folder, POOF! My InBox disappears! Sometimes it can be located inside another folder from which it CAN NOT be extricated even if I find it; often I can't even find the little bugger. Usually I just cry a lot and then import the last back-up (fortunately I do this every Saturday without fail), which means I lose everything I saved between Saturday and today . . . whenever "today" happens to be.
I don't know if this is a function of using CM on a USB drive or something I am doing wrong, but I'm weary of playing this game and NEED to find out why it's happening and how to fix it, but preferably how to keep it from happening at all.
The last problem I had was not being able to keep my folders in any but alphabetical order, with all those farcockteh (and for me, unnecessary) Today, Last Week, Virtual, Everything, etc., folders inter-filed. I thought I'd solved that problem by numbering my files 01-, 02-, 03-, in the order I wanted them, with the InBox as 01-, but that has now been moved into 12-, minus its position number, so that solution didn't actually turn out to be the fix that kept on giving.
[This morning three folders, one being the InBox, seem to have been reloaded from the back up - is that even possible? - but I didn't have time to see what actually happened. Argh!]
[And for the final part of my brain: I'm assuming that the archives will be back as soon as everything is back to normal, but I was never able to find my answer there in the past. Sigh!]
I will be eternally grateful if you are able to finally provide a solution that I can count on to keep my navigating InBox from heading south, or any other direction. Thanks a gazillion and Happy Baktan 13, which begins on Friday 12/21/2012!
