Fences 18.104.22.168, Win10 10.0.19043
I was asked to create a new topic for this issue which may or may not be related to a failure of Fences to start because Win Explorer was improperly shut down.
Purged Fences 3 by following the repair process described in that thread. Reinstalled from new download from Stardock, and got through the license dialog and into Fences. Purge hadn't cleared the Backups folder which contained a Pre-Install Snapshot and the recent daily backups (22-24 Nov). Fences Layout & Snapping recognizes and displays only the Pre-Install Snapshot (consisting of both xml and png files) but none of the previous days' backups, which were just xml files, no pngs. Any idea why and is there any way to use them?
No urgent for me since I've solved the immediate issue simply by recreating all the fences, portals and sorting rules from scratch. I still have the custom colours and transparencies to do. Clearly not optimal.
