Database seems to be there, but no data is accessible




Hi all, I have been using Eagle Filer for many years. My main machine died and I cannot access the database. I had made a copy in google drive. I downloaded that copy and when I import the library I get all the data except the content. There is over a 1.4GB database, but I cant seem to get at the data. Any help would be much appreciated. Screen shots attached. Best, Simon

The .eflibrary holds the database (which keeps track of which files are in the library) as well as indexes (to help display and search the files quickly). However, the actual files are stored in the Files folder that’s shown in your first screenshot. It seems like the contents of that folder did not get uploaded to Google Drive or that perhaps Google Drive is set to not download the complete folder to your Mac.
