« on: November 13, 2010, 09:07:37 PM »
I appended my username to the as the forum complained about a duplicate filename. Anyway here is my backup file. after its placed in the mach3 folder then mach3 opened, it is modified by mach3 but retains none of my original config. I appreciate your help.

I did rename it to .xml as per the readme in the xmlbackup folder. I have even tried installing numerous different versions to no avail as well as tried numerous different backup xml files. Frustration level pretty high /)

Actually Both,
 
I had a copy of the backup XML folder, and still somewhat able to read some of the crashed drive (many errors). Able to copy the backup files from the mach 3 directory 9of the crashed drive) but unable to get a viable copy of the entire mach3 folder. I tried both backup files from the crashed drive as well as from a backup machine i have.
The .xml files of my backup are 111K if that tells you anything.

I havnt used my mill in quite a while, went to fire it up this morning to find C-drive gave up the ghost. I have numerous backup copies of my mill profile XML files. However i cant seem to get the config into the new mach 3 install. I have tried installing many different versions. (im not certain of the version i was running prior to the crash,  ???it shows the profile in the loader app but doesnt bring in any of the config (ports, pins etc.) any advice will be greatly appreciated. I dread the idea of having to reconfig everything.

Please help.

Thank You,
Mike

Did try different pulse width settings which didnt help much. I will try the sherline mode this evening. even at half the speed is was running before it still misses steps, just stalls like the head bound up, which is not the case, i removed the load of the head, and even with only the ball screw and nut being driven at 1/2 speed it still stalls.

I just upgraded mach3 from an older version 1.5 - 2 years old. (sorry dont remember the old version). before the upgrade everything was working  well. now with the current release i am having a missed step problem. i spent an hour or so trying to retune to no avail also toggled enhanced pulseing, still no joy.

thanks,
mike
