Hi, I am hoping someone can help me.
the HC on my Mac failed recently during the upgrade to Catalina. As I am an idiot, I had no Time Machine back up, or anything, and had not backed up the Manager File for some time.
Poor fool me.
Luckily I had a friend who is a service engineer, and he was able to get it operating and recover previous backups from the failed drive. he also set up time machine, so don’t have to go through this process again.
As there was no programs installed, I downloaded the installation file and fired it up. This was mainly because I couldn’t see how to install a back up file, and I wanted to check first. I got to the create business page, and then shut it down, and moved the dmg file to Applications (I thought It should try to do this before starting but it didn’t) I tried again, and bought up the attached popup. I deleted the file and redownloaded again, and got this same file. I then got CCleaner and ran that, in order to remove registry links, and tried again. still no joy.
As such, I can get manager to work on my computer. the back up I have will require the reentry of probably 100 documents. I don’t mind, but I can’t even get it to open.
Looking at the file, it is looking for a file called 00000000000000000000000.manager, or similar. my understanding is that it creates this file when it is first initiated, and is like a configuration file. I deleted this and every other file I had on my computer (except the back ups) with the extension.manager, and tried again, but still get this same pop-up, referring to SQLite.
I see there are similar issues in the forum, but are a few years old, and seem to be linux related, not seem to have the same behaviour as described here
