Recover application running in the controller (not not application)

    Hi all,

    I am looking for some support after my project was corrupted during a PC crash.

    I am using the sew eurodrive implementation of codesys and when I download to the controller it has not been creating a boot project at the same time. As a result the actual running application is not the same as the not project.

    I am trying to recover this running application to minimise the rework required.

    I tried the source upload but this is just the boot project which is old.

    I did transfer all files from the controller to my PC so I do have a copy of the project.

    I can't go online because the compile information is different without doing a full download.

    Any ideas on how this can be recovered?

    If sources weren't sent into your PLC, then you can only recover binaries, which is only useful as a backup. You can later use this backup to download on a fresh new PLC, but you can't edit or modify it with codesys.

    Ok, Thats unfortunate. I will need to be more vigilant with saving and backing up in the future.
    Thanks for the reply
