Re: S.O.S #adiFiles

Hi Thomas,

the file is not hidden. If you use "Menu->File->Open log directory" you will see the file there. Windows may be hiding the file extension, which can be very confusing. If file extensions are hidden then there will be another column in the directory listing showing the file type, that should show ADI, if it shows as TXT then you have probably saved the file in Notepad.exe or similar which has renamed the file as wsjtx_log.adi.txt , if so you need to get rid of the ".txt" on the end.

Hi Phil I did what you suggested but the program isn’t reading the ADI file on startup. I am trying to remember how to get my file explorer on WINDOWS 7 to show the hidden. wsjt_log. ADI file.

On WSJT-X File->open log directory. Copy and paste the external log into that directory.

My main computer crashed and I lost everything for WSJTX..  I had my log backed up to a ADI file on a external drive.I have 
installed WSJT on a  back up system but  I cannot remember how to get my log back into WSJT X.
