Lost contents of MiniScrap window

Post by kdaube » 2014 Jun 30, 07:46

Hello friends,

Very often - but not on all starts of xplorer2 I get the message
Error reading and/or corrupt contents file
... and the MiniScrap is empty.

I have a list of shortcuts at D:\System_ddd\saves\Xplorer2 so that's it easy for me to regain the contents of the MiniScrap (just select all, then drag into MiniScrap).
After that operation I always use Actions > Save Settings Now.

But - what may be the reason for this frequent error?

Thanks for a hint.

miniscrap contents are saved in the TEMP folder. If you are cleaning up that folder you may be deleting the contents file. So right click in the miniscrap and use WRITE menu command to a safer location
