XML Parsing Error: no element found Location: chrome://reminderfox/content/addreminder-dialog.xul Line Number 658, Column 1: Last time I had a error, I reset and lost all my ReminderFox calender entries - Took forever to recreate. How do I save before a reset or retrieve my entries after a reset?

Hi dingo0408,
I have never used ReminderFox
but as I see here: Documentation-FAQ-Troubleshooting
there is a section I’ve lost my reminders! Can I retrieve a backup?
Reminderfox stores all reminder/todo’s data and backups in one directory. With a typical installation that directory is part of the users “profile” directory
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{someRandomNumber}.default\reminderfox\
The reminders and todos’s are typically stored to that directory with a file named “reminderfox.ics”. For that “reminderfox.ics” file automatic backups (snapshots for today and yesterday) are kept with a .bak1, .bak2, or .bak3 extension.

Hooray - Recovered my data. As I am computer illiterate (old school) it drives me nuts when I know there are backup files but unable to tag into them. Thanks alco - Saved me a lot of frustration - Have a great day.
