For those who don’t know German (basic translation):
"There’s a mistake while trying to open database [filepath]. Probably database is damaged. quick_check shows: […]
How shall we go on?
close darktable now to restore the database manually from a backup.
Try an automatic restoration frfom recent database snapshot.
Delete the damaged database in order to start with a new base."
No matter if I click on “restore” or “delete” this windows opens once again.
How to restore the database manually from a backup - I have no idea.
However, I cannot use darktable at all and that sucks!
Some information that might help:
I’ve installed the latest version of darktable before this error.
Recently, I cloned my HDD onto an SSD. Afterwards, I exchanged the hard drives. This was a success, but worked not perfectly. Some apps including darktable struggle to work problem-free: I now have crashes more often than before. Mostly, I have errors with OpenCL, but I don’t have much knowledge about this.
I’ve already read some articles with similar problems but neither found my exact problem nor understood what was going on there…
I appreciate every sort of assistance and will be here to answer any sort of questions.
I did it and it worked as you described it. Unfortunately, styles, layouts and all that is missing as well, but since this program worked so horribly in the past two weeks this was propably the best possibility to chose.
Much of that is in your data.db… you could try copying your old one over… if the issue was in your library then you might still have all the styles… you should also maybe have some backups to work with??
