    poweragent and migration of files

    I had my main computer (mac G4) die last week and am transferring all data to a new one (macpro).

    Migration has not been going well, especially with the powertap info. I had to manually save each and every file from the past 12 months and then manually import them to the new machine.

    The problem is this: Apparently the PT does not save the date (except at the time of download). This is not a problem except in migration. Now I have a hundred or more files that all say July 14, 2009. I am no longer able to find my individual landmark days or TTs. I have also lost all of my saved TT intervals.


    The only thing I was able to salvage were my power records, since recalculating them provided the same records, although the dates are now wrong.

    Any ideas on how to get my dates back?

    Can you just copy the entire ~/.poweragent directory from your old computer to your new one?

    That's where PowerAgent stores the activities with the metadata like dates. Exporting them as csv doesn't export the dates as you found out.

    what timster said -- if you're familiar with Terminal you should be able copy the files with their write-to-disk date (maybe).

    do the files have the July 14, 2009 date on the new macpro?

    I just had to figure out how to show dotted folders in the finder, then it was a piece of cake

    THANK YOU
