OK. So this is what happens. When i deleted the Tmp file as soon as i opened the program it was created again but with out the indexing.dat.
It's not normal, indexing.dat should be created too, with a size of 3KB.
The indexing.dat appears as soon as i make a rating of something and i close the program. Then it disappears the moment i open the program again.
Complete weirdness !
i discovered that most probably the indexing.dat that disappears changes and goes to the Backups file that exist in the file Coollector along with the Tmp file.
Great discovery ! And a total mystery too... indexing.dat should never go into the Backups directory. But what surprises me the more, is that normally a file can't be moved when it is in use. I'm totaly baffled here !
instead of having only one file it has many files "MyCoollection1", "MyCoolection2" and so on.
That's normal. Those are the backups automatically generated by the program.
And as many times i rate something and the indexing.dat appears and disappears so many of those files appear in the Backups file.
That's not normal. Backups should only be generated when you close Coollector (and if some change was actually made).
So any ideas what to do now?
Yes, I'll have to build you a special version of Coollector that checks if indexing.dat is there or not, and reports when there's something weird. I won't have time today, but I'll do it tomorrow.
Thank you very much for your patience !
