I had a HD failure and decided to replace my Mac, luckily I do regular backups. I have re-installed GS7 and followed the instructions to restore my database. Thank you for the clear instructions.
I would also like to import all my listings made with GS7 from my backup because when I import them from eBay, GS7 does not recognize the design properties. The design properties remain blank, which means I have to start over including linking the logos, pictures, settings etc…
Also, how do I re-install the templates Ive bought from the design store in GS7?
I recovered the whole database by copying the entire container file and still nothing but the orders history gets recovered. None of my listings nor the template I bought from the design store get recovered,
If the GarageSale 7 database still shows up empty you must have done something wrong OR the database from your backup is empty, too!
Do you have another backup version you could give a try?
Please double-check that you put the database from the backup to the correct diretcory on your current Mac.
By the way: If needed you can always re-download paid designs:
Select “Show design templates” from GarageSale’s “Window” menu.
In this window click on the cart icon in the toolbar; enter your transaction ID of your purchased design.
Afterwards, the design should be available in GarageSale design browser again.
