• Question about %RESCAN

    From Flavio Bessa@4:801/189.1 to All on Tue Sep 26 11:45:25 2017
    Hello everybody.

    I had recently an issue with a JAM area into my system that got corrupted beyond repair.

    As this area belongs to a Portuguese-echoed area at Fido, I requested my RC a %RESCAN, but to my surprise I got only the messages from outside my system... All the old messages from my BBS got stuck into the DUPES area.

    As my uplink uses FastEcho, is there a way to overcome this?

    But isn't this *your* system detecting them as dupes / already imported?

    Just the guy for a copy of his JAM files. :)

    that can happen at times...

    yup! that's how it should be...

    maybe delete your dupe database and %RESCAN again??

    Oops, that's missing the word "ask". I think it got sucked up by a session file 'save' function made during this temporary OS boot (Puppy Linux on USB). Sorry.

    Cheers,

    Indeed. I was wondering if there were any way to "force" the rescan and
    tell the messagebase to ignore the dupe setting.

    You mean, deleting the DUPES area?

    no... that's just a message base where they are stored so you can review them if you want to make sure that no FPs slipped through...

    i'm talking about deleting the %fecho%\FASTECHO.DUP file... that's where all the hashes are stored that FE uses to determine a dupe...

    You could probably move the FASTECHO.DUP file out of the way, do your tossing, and then put it back again.
