Hi I do not think so.. I am not sure.. I had made no updates to my user or forwarding info before the update.. My bbsuser.dat file got changed to a 5k file from 56k and all but one saved backup was either a 1k or 0 k I think somehow the update trashed it.. the .5 file may have been made by the update so it saved my skin…
I think.. 73 jerry
Further to my previous mail - a possible solution to loss of some details. I said previously :-
"I have a feeling that if, in the bpq32.cfg (say Forwarding page) you leave a space line above an entry, and save/close the page, it deletes all below that space line.
But I may be wrong - try it and see (but take a copy first ! "
I was referring to the forwarding file and not BPQ32.cfg file.
Open Configure>Manage Forwarding
Select a forwarding station
Make a note of what you have in the Connect script
Enter a space line above the entry in the Connect script.
Save and close the window
Open the window again and hey presto, the data has been deleted !
IS this what happened.to Jerry ?

There should be several backup copies of the user database - BPQBBSUsers.dat.bak, BPQBBSUsers.dat.bak.1, BPQBBSUsers.dat.bak.2

Came home at lunch to check this out… Found all my users missing info… everything is blank.. Will try to restore from a backup when I get home this evening..
Looks like all forwarding to and from me is offline for now. Maybe an update glitch.
Hi Jerry. Your users file might be
acting weird again. When I connect on RP
on 40 meters ur bbs asks me to register and then doesn't
offer any bulletins. Just a heads up.
