I am have 2 tablets (Samsung Tab2 and Samsung Active Tab3) that I am using to collect data in the field and then download via USB. Both tablets have SD cards so I wanted to create backups in the event of a data transfer failure. (I also just updated everything to the most recent versions and so far everything seems to be working fine)
I have selected “Use SD card for data backup” in the application which gave me .DAT, .TXT, and .XML files in the cybertrackerdata folder on the SD Card.
So then in the database properties I selected “Backup(CTX)” as the upload/download protocol and download protocol. However, after reinstalling the project on the tablets, generating more sightings, and downloading those sightings, I still don’t have a CTX backup file anywhere.
Is it possible to recover any data from the .DAT, .TXT, and . XML files on the SD cards if needed and if so how? And/or how do I actually create a CTX backup file?
Not an emergency, I’m just trying to be proactive.
