I created an adexl view, ran simulations, saved and closed it. Accidentally my virtuoso session crashed for some reason and the next time I restarted virtuoso, I can't open the adexl view I had previously saved. I looked at the unix directory and the data.sdb file for that adexl view had gotten deleted (again, I'm not sure why this file got deleted during the virtuoso crash)
Now, is there a way I can recover this adexl view, meaning, is there a way to open this adexl view or copy the tests setup from this adexl view to another view and open it? I had a lot of corners and sweeps setup and looking for a way to recover them without having to re-do the setup again.
Not really. However, you can get the information associated with each test - i.e. the analyses, options, local variables, outputs by creating a new test in a new adexl view, and then using the "Load State" form in the ADE XL test editor (or via RMB over the test name), picking directory, and navigating to the "test_states" dir within the old adexl view. You'll be able to load a state called something like theOldTestName_active.
You won't get any global variables you've altered, or any specs, or any corners, or any parameterization, but at least you should be able to recover the test set up this way.
I don't know why the data.sdb would have gone - I've not seen that happen before.
Perhaps using some design management software might be a good protection against this happening in the future?
