(Sorry for my English)

In Windows Explorer, I copied my Main brain to another folder (not including the Main_brain\Files folder);

Opened that copy, then deleted all thoughts;

When PB was deleting thoughts, a dialog popped up (see the attached image), it seemed PB was trying to delete an opened Word Document in the original brain!

After PB finished deleting thoughts in the copied brain, I compared the original brain with a backup, which I created a just few hours ago, and found at least 666 internal files of the original brain were deleted! (I have 5800 internal files in the original brain). Later I restored these deleted files from the backup.


Again, in Windows Explorer, I copied the original Main brain to another folder (also not including the Main_brain\Files folder);

Opened that copy. Then, without activating them, added 5 thoughts (they have several of the 666 deleted files) to the Selection box, then deleted them.

I then checked the original brain, and found the internal files of these 5 thoughts were again deleted!

I tried to copy these 5 thoughts to another brain, and replicate the issue there, but no success.

Sorry, I can't send my Main brain to Support because it contains a lot of sensitive data.

Thanks Moe.

I also can't reproduce this issue on my other brains, but I can reproduce it on my Main brain.

As described in my previous post, after deleting all thoughts of the copied brain, 666 out of 5800 (about 10%) internal files of the original brain were deleted.

I guess this might be related to the addresses of internal files. It looks like PB used relative addresses for most of the internal files in my main brain, but used absolute addresses for that 666 deleted files.

This reminds me of the addresses of pasted images. By checking the contents of the .clb files in the brain_db_backup folder, I noticed that the addresses of most pasted images are relative addresses, something like:

<img src="<!--thoughtBaseURL-->PersonalBrain Notes/image34848.jpg"/>

But the addresses of a few pasted images (11 out of 1022, about 1%) are absolute addresses, something like:

<img src="file:///C:/Brains/Main_brain/Files/D4F8A844-8E93-1564-12A3-76CC5617A0EF/PersonalBrain Notes/image2245.jpg"/>

I guess maybe something similar happened on the addresses of internal files?
