Lost Folders

Post by titter »

I've reinstalled basecamp on my PC and all the folders and routes which would show in my library in the old version have gone. Theres lots of files sitting on my PC in Garmin folders, would any of these be the old folders and routes? I'm thinking files with extensions GMP.
Will this library be stored on my PC anywhere and if so what are the files extensions I need to look for?

I think .gmp files are the maps. My Basecamp data seems to use .gdp files. FWIW I find Everything priceless for finding stuff on a PC!

On a Windows PC, all of the routes and folders should be in the BaseCamp database.
It should be in C:\Users\your-username\AppData\Roaming\GARMIN\BaseCamp\Database

At least, that where it is on my PC.

Your data is in alldata.gdb

If you search for that file you'll find the folder you need to point BaseCamp at.

But if you have re-installed BC, won't it overwrite the files unless you have moved them beforehand?
