LinkWare freezes (stops) when downloading test results

LinkWare can appear to freeze/stop working when there are more than 15 site names/projects on the memory card. If there are between 15 and 20 site names or projects on the memory card, LinkWare will appear to freeze for up to 7 minutes.


DO NOT END THE PROGRAM WITH CTRL + ALT + DEL


If you do this, you may corrupt the LinkWare file. In  it will attempt to recover the corrupted file.

Workaround:
Try and avoid saving more than 15 projects / site names on one card. Every so often, format the memory card this is generally a good idea and can aid saving times.

Adrian's tip
Using multiple cards is always a good idea, just incase you happen to lose one. Although you can store many hundreds of results on one card, spreading them across multiple cards reduces your liability in case one gets lost.
