Register 360: Cannot open moved projct

Post by wxfloyd » Mon Jun 24, 2019 10:40 pm

Long story short, I'm processing a couple of jobs, both of which are fairly large (200+ scans each). Because of the large file sizes I'm dealing with, I can only process one job at a time on my computer. So when I'm done with one job, I copy all of my data on to a portable hard drive (which I give to IT for data archiving).
After finishing a job, and then moving all of the files to the portable drive, I noticed an issue that requires me to revisit the project in Register 360.
The problem I am having is that I simply cannot navigate to the new location of the folder and simply open the project. I tried reconnecting the project folder in R360, but it says no projects found.
I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but cannot figure out how to open up this project from a different drive location.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

Are you using the gui inside Reg360 to perform the first move for your projects, or moving them in windows explorer? Image

I copied the project to an external hard drive, then deleted the project on my computer to free up space for the next project I had to work on. I guess I don't understand why we can't simply just open a project from a different location, just like I could do if I copied an Autocad file or Recap project to a different project.
It nearly defeats the ability for me to back up these projects, as I don't have access to the location that I am archiving them to. So I have to copy the project onto a portable drive, then give the drive to my IT manager who then copies it onto the backup drive.
I am fairly new to using Register 360, so please forgive me if I'm missing something obvious.

How are you copying your projects, Are you using the Archive function from inside Reg360.

This is the only way to remove a project from the system and bring it back at a later date. This is not the same as relocate.

From inside reg360 set a archive folder. you can then archive your project give that to your IT person. To bring it back. de archive it and place it back in to the archive folder and reg360 will pick it back up again. The backend of reg360 is database driven which is why the folder structure of your storage location (when viewed in explorer) looks strange

I was copying the entire project folder in windows explorer. I wasn't aware that I had to archive the project within Reg360 just to move/copy the project. I'm assuming those are the .raf files that are then able to be copied and moved within windows explorer?

So for my projects that I did copy from within Windows explorer, are they useless? Is there no way to "recover" them and then properly archive them?

That would be a question for the Leica support team as I can't remember the answer off the top of my head. I think its possible but don't quote me on that
