Lost all my Setlists

Post by Adam Landfair »

So, I accidentally deleted the all my setlists. I forgot that the .plist files were mixed in with all my pdfs. I did a restore, and was able get all my deleted sets as .plist files, but none of them will show up in iGigbook. What can I do?

Hey thanks for the response. Yeah, I removed the App, and re-downloaded it. Dropped all my fakebooks, pdfs, and .plist files into it. I logged in, and it re-synced all my fake book indexes no problem, but none of my set lists show up...

Where did you get the .plist files?

I was able to restore to a old backup of my entire ios ipad thru iTunes. I found the .plist files in the file sharing portion of iTunes and grabbed them onto my desktop, before reverting the iPad back to it's current state.

For every set_<set list name>.plist file you will need to create an entry "<set list name>" using the Set List Manager.
