      I installed the new version of elephant and it automatically imported my hand histories. This took around 14 hours to complete.

      I open it and find that many hands are missing and the thousands of categorized hands I had before are now uncategorized. I am having trouble trying to figure out how to reopen the database backup.

      The name of the old database is on the DB list, but the software will not allow me to activate it. I try and it just doesn't respond. I tried re-importing and that seemed to be doing something, but when I checked the graph, nothing had changed.

      How do I get back all of the old data and hand categories I had from .67 and combine with what is already reimported into the new database?

      Hey strat9,

      do you have a complete backup of your old database? Please try reimporting the data via pgAdmin II. Does this work?

      After this is done, add your new files with the elephants import functionality.
