Imagine my surprise when I discovered while doing a search in the Windows folder for files modified today that I had Heavy Weather History files in Windows. A quick search for all .dat files turned up 819 now described as HeavyWeather History Files.
Easy enough to fix but why do software developers have the arrogance to change the file type description of one of the most commonly used extensions to reflect their on product?
I'm not sure what it is you mean with "Easy enough to fix" but the History.dat files generated by the Heavyweather Pro program can be stored anywhere on your P.C. that you designate. In the program location, "Extras / Options" is the directory you can set (name and location) along with where you can change the "History.dat" filename to whatever you like. I let mine write as "History##.dat" (## is the year) and save them off to memory sticks monthly as "mon/yr.dat" files.
