Many of you, like me, probably use Linkman as an all-purpose PIM and information repository, as well as bookmarks. There is one behaviour I noticed that I want to discuss with the Donationcoder experts.
Linkman has a method of saving to backup files with extensions like .ba0, .ba1, etc. And this is very helpful for giving you access to a recent copy in case of things like a crash. You have flexibility as to the frequency of the saves, I choose about 10 minutes, not after every add.
What I find perplexing is that the main file .lmd often is behind the .ba_ files when you reopen Linkman after crashes (this can be a Windows forced reboot, or an occasional Linkman lockup) ... and maybe, at times, even after exiting the program normally.
What I do in that case, if I remember the problem, is go to the backup files in Total Commander, see which is the biggest ( ba0 ) and then rename the .lmd file to .aaa (or anything) and rename the .ba0 file to .lmd . Thus I have data that is up-to-date.
However, this seems strange to me, that the .lmd file gets so far behind. That it is not updated at the time of the saves. I've discussed this a bit with Thomas from Linkman, without succeeding in getting him to agree that this is unusual. Now there may be a problem updating the .lmd file which is in memory, that is a techie question. However, do a test, sometimes I think the problem even exists on normal "exits" (at least it has seemed that way to me), where there is not a memory issue.
So your experiences and perspective is welcome.
Am I missing something ? Is there something that should be improved ?
