Re: Drive Crash/Restore now WUHU constantly shows OFL
- I found my problem about 4AM, yawn... It seems that the failing hard drive corrupted the records.txt file associated with my weather station. The software was writing to the records.txt file correctly but not updating the time stamp. All entries showed the same date/time since I installed the new drive. I'm guessing WUHU thought the station was offline since the file time stamp was not changing. I removed the records.txt and let it create a new file and WUHU came back online within 2 minutes.

I restored from a 04/2812 backup. My weather station software is running and writing the files correctly. It is almost like WUHU does not see the file or try to read it. I'm trying to figure out what I have missed during the restore. Below is all that is written to the log. I've left it running for over an hour at one point and still get the same type log entry. No errors, just shows everything OFL and ? for the data fields. Mouse over the updates and they are all 0/0. I re-installed WUHU just to make sure something was not missing.
