Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Simon crashed and now I'm missing data

Help.... It's not as serious as it sounds, but night before last, Simon crashed, or the machine lost power - something happened that cause Simon to no longer check.

When I turned the machine back on, I did the update to 2.5.5, and now all of my reports are missing.

Where are they stored? Is there any way to get them back?

Re: Simon crashed and now I'm missing data

I'm sorry to hear that. I haven't heard of data loss like that before, but I suppose if the machine lost power at the precise wrong time, when the file was being saved, it could happen. Would be a major fluke, though: the data is written out in a way that should avoid that possibility.

Anyway, the data is stored in the ~/Library/Application Support/Dejal/Simon folder. You could perhaps revert this folder from a backup to get the data back, though of course you'd lose any changes you've made since then.
