To close the topic, I'd like to point some usefull information I found
this morning :
- alternative start-up :
- Backup, restore and optimisation routines in Chandler Desktop :
- Chandler quits on launch or won't start.
Ok ok Got it now.
So If I am back up addicted, I should export to .chex file manually.
Also If Chandler crash, one should try the several alternative
cleaning-starts before getting back to backup files.
Proposition to chandler developpers :
I think it would be great to fire a message to users when a Exception
occures while starting up pointing the possibility to use alternative
Indeed those alternatives are just great but I discovered them after
having solved my prb by hand (I mean command lines and many hours confused).
