Suddenly can't open .indiDb database

All of a sudden, after a reboot, I can't open my MyHouse.indiDb file

When I boot Indigo, it tells me there's no database (though it seems to be looking in Application Support). I tell it to find my file, and grab the one on my desktop (where it's been for literally years).

Indigo then freezes for a minute, eventually unfreezes, but still thinks it doesn't have a database, so none of my devices or plugins are present.

Help?!

I moved the file to /Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 7.4/Databases

It now opens, but tells me it's corrupt. I'm going to grab last night's backup from Backblaze and hope that fixes things.

If not, what options do I have aside from rebuilding everything?

Restoring a backup worked.

I guess filling my hard drive completely backing up a remote server overnight caused the file to not get written to properly and it became corrupt. Phew!

Hi Mike – I'm glad the backup worked!
