I have been a big fan of MyPhoneExplorer for more than 15 years and until now, I have never had any major issues with the software.

I was looking at my events and I have a friend's birthday that I noticed was both registered as a recurring event and as a birthday event (I guess I initially registered it on my phone where it can only be an event and then with MPE later). I marked the birthday as a recurring event in order to delete it, right clicked and saw there was a "delete all previous events", which I chose.

Instead of marking all previous entries of the recurring event, my whole friggin database was marked for deletion! With a simple right-click you can actually select to delete your entire history of events. No warnings or anything!

How do I undo this? I do not want to erase all my events!!!!!!

Closing the app and opening it again does not remove that the ENTIRE EVENT HISTORY is marked for deletion. One single miss-click has rendered the software utterly useless, because if I ever connect my phone to MPE again and it synchronizes then everything will be gone!

As I said, I have never had any issues with the software, but I cannot believe that it has a built in booby trap where you can accidentally erase everything with one single mistake without warning an no obvious way to undo it.

To be honest, I am in a bit of panic here, because I use the app regularly, but at this moment, the next synchronization is an accident waiting to happen, so I can no longer use MPE.

How do I unmark all entries, so I do not lose everything?

I think it should be same as contact edit or mark to remove on them.
If you edit on events or other action, it will change from "to remove" to "to edit"

edit: i tried it and it's work exactly like i described - "edit" do change "to delete" to "pencil icon" which if you do no changes do nothing when synchronize.

Thanks nEON, it was a good workaround and you saved my data Smile

I hope the developer guy follows the forum, so he can work on GUI bugs like this as well. It is not that I have encountered a lot of GUI bugs, but this one created a bit of a panic situation.

Other than that, FJ guy, keep up the good work. MyPhoneExpolerer is awesome.
