I’ve been having problems with stability in EagleFiler. It’s been crashing far too often and in a couple of cases it has caused files to be corrupted. I’ve started to send my error reports to make you aware, but I’m starting to get concerned about the integrity of my data.
Twice while I was moving a file from the library to a folder, EF crashed. When I restarted I was notified that there was a problem with one of the files, the one I was moving when it crashed. The file appeared in the library with a size of 0kb and was no longer on my hard drive. Neither was a critical loss, the first I had a backup copy and the second was text I grabbed from a webpage. But at this point I’m hesitant to keep anything in EF unless I have a backup.
I had a different problem today. I opened EF and the Activity Monitor showed it was indexing all my notes (it does this pretty often). I used the Services menu to capture some text from a page. EF crashed at this point. I reopened EF and tried to recreate this problem. It didn’t crash the next time, I did get this error:
UnicodeDecodeError: ‘ascii’ codec can’t decode byte 0xd0 in position 224: ordinal not in range(128)
Are these known problems that will be addressed in the next release?
