File corrupted on a blackout

Post  Opsy on Mon Mar 25, 2013 7:29 am


I report this but I think it is not actually a comig tagger issue.

Yesterday I was tagging some files. On an example of what bad luck means, my home power blackout. When I restarted my computer and comic tagger, I saw that the last file that comic tagger analyzed was corrupt. I guess that the power went off just when comic tagger was adding the metadata information to the file. I don't know if it is possible to take into account this. Maybe adding the metadata to a temporal copy and after that replace the old file with the tagged one could fix the issue.

The mods actually do get done to a temp file when modifying a CBZ file. After it's done, it's copied over the original. Not much can be done when a power-outage occurs in the middle of the copy process though.

You might want to look in the folder and see if there is a file that starts with "tmp". That might be the file that failed to copy over completely.
