Sherlock,

Thanks for posting.  This type of error typically only occurs if you move/edit files in your Brains directory from outside the application (in Windows explorer).

I'll send you a private, direct message on a quick fix for this issue.

Thank you,
Matt

I became aware of the same problem some days ago when I got the following message:
Brain Data Verification
Data is missing from the following location:
C:\Users\Lazarus\Brains\U01\B01....
Were files from these folders ...
The missing folders had the names B01 to B28. The folders in U00 had the names B29 and so on. The "thumbnail panel" contained thumbnails corresponding to folders B29 and so on. It also contained greyed and inactive thumbnails that seemed to correspond to folders B0 to B29.
How can this be repaired?

Hi Oddur,

I responded on your support ticket a few days ago, but it looks like it was a different email. In your case, you will need to move the folders that are listed in that message to the correct U0x folder. I've emailed you with more specific instructions.

Cheers, Sean

Unfortunately I also have the same situation:

upon start up of "the Brain" I get  Screen Shot 2019-07-05 at 4.51.16 PM.png 
I know how I got here too.

I downloaded a trial version, found I didn't use it and then ripped it out by hand.  Forward 6 months, and after evaluating several other alternatives I have decided to use "the brain" and have the Pro version installed.

My new repository is in ~/Brains/U01/B02

Thanks for your help!

RawbRawb,

Thanks for posting and also sharing the background of this scenario. It sounds like there is a database file that *thinks* data should be found in U01/B01, but this directory was probably something that you deleted manually.  Please try the following:
  • Close TheBrain
  • Navigate to C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\TheBrain\MetaDB
  • Rename the TheBrainMeta.db file in this location to TheBrainMeta.db.old
  • Restart TheBrain application
  • You'll be required to login again
Please let me know how this process works for you and if the issue is resolved.

Thank you,
Matt

My apologies, I forgot to mention that I am on a MacOS system. Where would this directory be in _that_ system?

Thanks

Hello RawbRawb,

Here is the Mac version of the steps Matt provided:
-Open Finder
-Click on Go > Go to
-Type ~/.TheBrain/v9/MetaDB

-Rename the file there to TheBrainMeta.db.old
-Restart TheBrain
-Login again

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
Jay

Jay and Matt:
Thanks heaps, my system now boots without the splash dialog !

As a note, I at first panicked because my heavily populated Brain was "missing" but I opened it from my identity icon and NOT the file dialog.
Thanks again.

Hi Matt,
I have the same problem and followed the foregoing instructions. The msg still pops up and the file TheBrainMeta.db is not being recreated. I have looked for that file in other locations and it is not present. This is Windows 10.

Cap,

The AppData folder is sometimes hidden/protected in Windows, so It can be hard to find.  You can usually get there by opening TheBrain and clicking on Help > Open Log Directory.  Go up one level from the directory that opens up and into the MetaDB folder.

Please let me know if this helps, you can also contact support@thebrain.com and we can schedule a web meeting together to take a closer look.

Thank you,
Matt
