Database format
« on: 03 02 2020, 14:53:51 »
Hi there. I have old corrupted database, not ecrypted.
So i want to make simple tool for checking consistency and will try to find error manually.

Do we have anywhere documentation about database format, or it is can be find only on source code?

It is not repairing automatically. Destroying history. So i want to try manually somehow.

Osoro,
it seems that the only way of recovering this file is writing your own tool that will uncrunch data from the old profile.
all structures are described in the /plugins/Dbx_mmap/src/dbintf.h, so you can easily create your own program that reads them
