Hi,

Can anyone tell me why there are a load of text files in the folder I save Gnucash to, and can they be safely deleted.

Thanks Gareth

Thanks for the reply D, but under the file type is says Text Document which can be opened in Notepad.

 

I might be missing it but I can’t find that reference in the link you sent

David Carlson-4
I think that Windows calls them text files if once you opened one with
Notepad.

They are constructed with text characters,  but they are not exactly human
readable.

If you mean the .log files, these are transaction logs.  You can delete them
if you are sure your currently saved data file is 100% up-to-date and correct.
Note that there will also be a batch of GnuCash data files, with names
containing the date and time.  These are backup copies of your data file.

Re: [GNC] Text Files

David Cousens
In reply to this post by GnuCash - User mailing list
Gareth,

If you chose XML format to save your data, all the data files are actually text files. The main data file and its
backups files are formatted internally with XML tags.  The log files have their own syntax for each transaction record.
You can open any of them with any text editor.

Linux reports the files ending in ".gnucash" as spreadsheet files and the ".log" files as Text files but that is because
of the mapping of file extensions onto file types used.

Re: [GNC] Text Files

John Ralls
That’s if you chose XML format *and disabled compression in Preferences*. Otherwise the XML is compressed with gzip and will be gibberish if opened in a text editor. It can be easily decompressed with most compression programs like 7zip.

John Ralls

Re: [GNC] Text Files

Maf. King
Hi,

that looks like a .log file to me.  What is the actual name of the file
(including the extension)?  Ignore what your system thinks it's "type" is.

Maf.

Re: [GNC] Text Files

GnuCash - User mailing list
Hi, Maf

Strange, in the actual folder it looks like I have shown it below, but when I tried to copy and paste it, it went into the attached part above and changed it into a .Log extension.
So you are probably correct it is a Log file but in another name on my computer.

Hi,

that looks like a .log file to me.  What is the actual name of the file (including the extension)?  Ignore what your system thinks it's "type" is.

Maf.

Re: [GNC] Text Files

David Carlson-4
Gareth,

Windows does not show the file extensions in File Explorer unless you
change a setting in your Windows preferences.  Most of the experienced
Windows users, A.K.A. 'Old Fogies' (like me) change that setting early on
and forget that some people may not be familiar with it.

The extension .log is a part of the file name but your File Explorer is
configured (by default) to hide the suffices because they might confuse
you, which they did, so which way is actually more confusing?

The Linux world is more sane.

Are you sure the name isn't something like "MyAccounts.201812031234.log"?

Your Windows setting is to hide file extensions. You can change that if you prefer. Then you would see the ".log" appended to what you have listed here.

Strange, in the actual folder it looks like I have shown it below, but when I tried to copy and paste it, it went into the attached part above and changed it into a .Log extension.
So you are probably correct it is a Log file but in another name on my computer.

Hi,

that looks like a .log file to me.  What is the actual name of the file (including the extension)?  Ignore what your system thinks it's "type" is.

Maf.
