  • (#3214)   Create a map of Guid changes made during an import of a V8 Brain
    • After an import from is completed, inside the Brain folder (one level above a thought folder), there are now two files, GuidMapThoughts.txt and GuidMapLinks.txt. These files contain one line per thought/link which has on it the version 8 Guid followed by the new Guid separated by a comma.


What is the use case here?  What do we do with this file?  I wouldn't know from a GUID what the thoughts are.

Most people will not have any use for these files and they can be deleted if desired.

Who would have use for them?  It's my data so I'd like to know who would use them.

Based on the discussion it's because some people have documents (for example Word files) containing links to other files stored in TheBrain.

In TheBrain 9 import new GUIDs are assigned to all thoughts and links which would have broken the links in the documents. The new files created during the Import of a v8 to a v9 database will allow people who have done this to manually correct the file links in their documents using the old GUID and new GUID in the GUIDMapThoughts.txt (or GUIDMapLinks.txt if the file was attached to a link and not a thought).
