Misc ingredients disappeared
« on: October 12, 2011, 12:33:13 AM »
Not sure if this is a problem my end or not but i had to re-enter my registration key for some reason and when I got back into Beersmith  (saved it) the latest recipe i had been working on had disappeared but more importantly the miscellaneous ingredients list is now empty.
Any ideas?

Hi,
  Most of these issues I've seen have to do with people running multiple copies off of a shared drive or Dropbox.  I suspect they may have two copies of the program overwriting each other.

  The other possibility is that the program crashed before or during the writing of the data - which could lead to a corrupt file.

  You can recover the Misc list - use BeerSmith to open the file Misc.bsmx in your Program Files directory (Program Files/BeerSmith2 or Program Files (x86)/BeerSmith2 on Windows) and then copy/paste the items back to your Misc list.
