Start-up Options for Chandler

Complementary to Chandler quits on launch or won't start in Troubleshoot Chandler.

1: Continue with normal startup

2: Do internal clean-up, but save my data and preferences

3: Discard recent changes until data integrity tests pass

4: Discard recent changes until application no longer fails to start

5: Discard my full-text index and reindex all my data

6: Discard all my data and start with a fresh repository

If you discard data in this way, you may then:

  • import from backup.chex
    • Chandler Desktop will re-present the working environment that coincided with the most recent normal export (backup) at Quit time
    • a __repository__ that is recreated in this way is coincidentally optimised (comparable to the periodic optimisation routine).

7: Make a snapshot of all my data to submit with a bug report, then quit

8: Discard all my data and restore from a previous snapshot (this can take a few minutes)

This type of restoration is limited to .tgz files.

binary_backup.tgz is typically older than backup.chex

If you do have a .chex (Chandler export) that is more recent than the .tgz you may:

  • prefer to discard and start afresh (see option 6 above) then import from the recent, good .chex
  • prefer to not restore from the older, good .tgz
