Crash wipes backup

Crash wipes backup
This is third time this has happened on my PC:
* The PC crashes (Win7 x64 Pro)
* Upon reboot, WhatPulse has no valid database. It reports "Something really bad happened to the database and the backup database. The only way to recover is to create a new database"
* The actual database and it's backup are 3.136KBytes of nothing but zeroes.

Here is the last from the log:

RE: Crash wipes backup
If my guess that 23-03-2014 08:23:54.513 is right before the crash, is right...your Windows has some terrible timing..

Your system appears to have crashed during the database backup, corrupting the real database and the backup file. There's nothing you can do about that, besides making a manual backup of either the current or backup database file yourself.

Seems self evident, but try not to have Windows crash that much..

RE: Crash wipes backup
If you are using Windows 7 or 8, right click on the database file and go to properties, Click on the previous versions tab and check if there is any version and restore. The same thing happened to me today and I was lucky that there was a backup made 4 hours ago. So try your luck Smile
