Re: [NTB] .txt and .dat files open as empty documents
If I have followed this thread correctly and I have been so busy at
other things, I may have missed something. But I think you said this
started about 2 months ago. Since it works on all computers but yours,
I would search to see what I did just before this started. Another
program was installed? Check to see what is running in the background.
(these have been suggested previously) but since it works on all other
computers it must be something causing this to happpen that is only on
You might have to save your data and format the hard drive re-install
NoteTab and see if now works properly, then replace all the programs one
by one with data and check to see if NoteTab is still operational. When
it ceases to be operational you will have found the cause. Lots of
work, yes, another solution would be to replace the computer and put
NoteTab on the new one and go through the same basic procedure. You
have already uninstalled and re-installed NoteTab. Or you might try
partitioning the hard drive and putting notetab in its own partition if
you are good at that sort of thing. Again you would have to do a backup
of your data just in case you make an error partitioning the hard drive
and all you have to do is hit yes when you meant to hit no or somthing
similar. I know that I have been down that road and it is very easy to
hit one wrong key and wipe out everything.
. As the first step, however, I think that I would look back and see
what programs that I had installed about the time this started and at
least remove all those programs and try to see if NoteTab works then.
How much space do you have left on your hard drive. I have seen
problems begin when it was almost used up because a lot of programs
write to the hard drive and removing it when it has finished, but if
there is no room or not enough room for the program to do this strange
things can happen.
