Lost custom libraries

#1 Post by fluxanode » 15 Aug 2018, 14:02

I lost my user libraries when my computer crashed. I do have backups of the schematics and the PCB layouts (thank God). Is there anyway to recover the components and patterns and recreate my lost libs?

Open Pattern or Component editor and create a new library for patterns and components or two libraries for separate patterns and components (try to name them the same as what they were) then open your PCB file in PCB editor, set your Library Group/Library to what you created, select a device and right mouse click Save to Library, repeat until your device patterns are saved. Repeat with Schematic editor. Now verify that the component pattern points to the right device in the new library.
The Word for today is 'Cloud' as in backup.
