where does weather display store data
« on: August 08, 2019, 09:02:11 PM »
I'm looking for the monthly logs and NOAA logs.

There is a folder called databackup/databackup72019.zip inside this folder there is a txt file called 72019lg.txt inside this file looks to be the daily data from July 2019.

I don't know where the NOAA reports are stored but in weather display if i go to View - Noaa style reports the report is missing two weeks of data even though the 72019lg.txt files has everyday for July.

Is there a way for weather display to regenerate the NOAA report? Also does anyone know what wdispalyftp.reg is? It is in every data back up folder.

Any help is appreciated.

the logfiles are stored in the logfiles folder
and the data files, used for the reports and graphs, are stored in the datafiles folder
and then any internet files are stored in the webfiles folder

re missing data
try converting that logfile to data file
via action, convert WD logfiles to data files, select that file, then click on convert

in the webfiles folder
(the actual data used to create them is the data files from the datafiles folder)
