Failed to open hash data: IO error

Postby nagaina » 17 Feb 2019, 17:03

Documents\AirDC++\HashData\/005996.idb

recently started getting this error on startup and can not open AirDC anymore, reinstalling doesn't solve it. Any suggestions? There isn't another instance running either

Have you tried to start the app without the old database directories?

Rename the directory that you see in the error message or move it elsewhere
