I'm in need of help with Lytec 2000 chiropractic stand alone. I did a fresh install of windows 7 32 bit on a machine because, it had several bad Trojans on it, and recommended to the customer to reinstall just to be sure. but before I did that I copied the lytec 2000 folder in two other places, as it appeared to hold the database. I installed windows 7, and then installed the lytec 2000 program, and copied back the lytec 2000 folder with all of the dat files in it. The first time it opened it came up with some errors with like the Table is full, so I turned off UAC and that took care of them issues, so I check on the data. This is where I need the help: Most of the data is there, but no data for this year 2013, and only half of 2012 is there. I have gone and opened up all of the copies, and they are they are same info. I even went into the windows.old folder which has everything saved, and the same thing. Missing data. Where did it go? is there other files somewhere else that hold that info. I went and compared files from all of the backups and they are the same size. I did the rebuild data, that did not fix anything. I have 3 copies of the same folders with the data but all have the same missing info. What am I missing? where else would some of the data be? if its not inside the lytec folder then where? I'm desperate for any info.
I was able to resolve this. I searched the hard drive for all .dat files and found them .dat files were buried in the user's folder. I guess with windows 7 if a program is not running correctly it puts it into a special folder and for the life of me can't remember what that folder was called but it was buried in the user/username/appdata. You will have to tell window to show all hidden folder/files. I would start off like this. Go un hide folder and and files, goto search and for .dat files. See what you find with that
