i am using portable TB from a USB hdd. been using this for few months now. very contented.
today morning, while shutting down my PC, i removed the USB hdd, & windows gives warning of failing to write something on the hdd. (actually TB was closed just before that)
now it does not start. i just tried copying all contents of profile folder into another portable TB installation on c drive, when i noticed that the file prefs.js cannot be copied. so i replace this file from a old backup, & it works, but the recent config changes are lost.
plus now there is a new problem. any customisations that i wish to make to my toolbar are getting lost, when i restart TB.
would like to know
1. if there are any other option to get back to the former status ?
2. will just replacing prefs.js entail any new problems for me ?
3. is there something i can do to avoid getting into this problem again ?
