I lost some singers

Post by HowardBrazee »

I opened a venue in kJams and some singers were missing. I found that some of the names in /Users/HBrazee/Music/kJams/kJams Library/Venues/Affinity/Singers/ were shortcuts to /Users/HBrazee/.Trash/Singers/Singers/ ! In Time Machine, I kept finding them as shortcuts.


I want to get these singers (with their history) back, but don't know where to look.

Tomorrow's our every-four-week Karaoke night. I was going to look at people's history tonight, but some people (including me) aren't visible from kJams, and are shortcuts in the directory.

note that if you create a singer in venue A, then go to venue B and add that singer to that venue, it's JUST an alias to the one in Venue A, there's no copy made.

so if you then go to venue A and DELETE That singer, you're trashing the only copy, and the alias in venue B will then point to the one in the trash.

not sure HOW you got into this state, but you basically have to put everything back to the way it was BEFORE you trashed the singer from the first venue?

I did play with venues, before deleting all but one.

that's probably it. you probably deleted the original singers. i can't really help you recover from deletion, you'll just have to find a backup that had things the way you wanted?
