Losing configuration at system crash


#1

This has now happened several times, last time it was caused by my computer just switching off.

When starting TOAD again I got the following errors:

Internal error: Cannot load information contained in …\MakeStripCode.dat
Internal error: Cannot load information contained in …\CodeSnippets.dat

Afterwards, my stored passwords and configuration was gone too.

The err files just contain some NUL characters: CodeSnippets.err (34 Bytes)

This has now happened several times.
How can these files become corrupt? Does TOAD keep writing to them even though nothing changes?


#2

This has just happened again (13.1.0.64).
System did not recover from hibernate, so I had to switch it off. I cannot imagine a reason for TOAD to have these files open at this point and corrupt them.

Any ideas?
