Help downloading history from the base station

Post by Northend »

I have been using the base station for 5 weeks and have only just downloaded the Cumulus software onto my laptop (I’m using Windows 8). How do I download the data stored in the base station from the last 5 weeks?

Upon installing Cumulus it starts receiving data from the station from that date/time on. As you also likely know, if you shut down Cumulus and restart it later then Cumulus downloads the data from the logger since last running Cumulus so your data is continuous. However data from before installing Cumulus is not downloaded.

I have also read and likely a search on the forum should get you some discussion, about changing the date in cumulus.ini to trick Cumulus to download logger data from an earlier date (depending on how far data is stored in the logger). I have not done this so can't give you any further information.

This is a link to the Cumulus FAQ https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/FAQ#C ... Cumulus.3F

EDIT:
This is another related FAQ https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/FAQ#I ... er_station

Enjoy,

Try first everything in this FAQ (please note re-installing s/w is not a suggested solution!):
https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/FAQ#C ... my_station
As you are using a Fine Offset it might be the pressure related issue mentioned in the above quoted FAQ (at least that is what happened to me), so also see https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/FAQ#C ... et_console for how to resolve that.
