bin file in backup? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use a Garmin 305 to record my running/biking workouts and the software that comes with it, Garmin Training Center.  I appear to have lost my history from January 08 to July 08 and was hoping to find a back up of that history in my onecare backup.

    The garmin history file is stored here:  C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GARMIN\Training Center\3391503497

    the name of the file is:  HistoryTree.bin

    Is this a file that is not backed up, because when I searched for it on a previous back up (hoping to go back to July as it appears that from July to now is there) I did not find it.

  • It appears that this is an omission in the list of types not backed up as a .bin file is typically considered to be a binary image file, which I expect is not backed up. If you have "other" selected for file types to back up and this one does not appear, then I believe it was not backed up, unfortunately.
