How-to: Eliminate Ghost Activities

Postby Detlef Schmuck » 29 Dec 2016, 12:16

Background: As a result from old operations in a Space, there might be corrupted entries in the Space database, which repetitive generate Activity Log entries. These entries repeat folder moves or file creations from the past with an actual new date in the Activity log. Nothing to worry, but in some cases annoying. Specially when these activities are listed from users which are no longer a member in a Space.

It is easy to eliminate those ghost activities for old Spaces.

1) update all team members to the latest TeamDrive Client 4.3.1. or higher
2) One Space member need to Restore the Space from scratch. (Space -> Information -> Restore -> Advanded -> Rejoin from scratch)
This operation may take a while, depending how many transactions happened in the Space since its creation.
3) All Space members need to Restore the Space (Space -> Information -> Restore -> Restore)

The TeamDrive Client Versions 4.3.1. and higher will prevent such ghost activities for new Spaces.


Anleitung zum Beseitigen von Geisternachrichten in dem Aktivitäten Log:

1) Alle Space Mitglieder müssen auf die aktuelle TeamDrive Version 4.3.1. oder höher updaten
2) Ein Space Mitglied muss den Space vom Ursprung "Wiederherstellen"
(Space -> Information -> Wiederherstellen -> Erweitert -> Vollständige Wiederherstellung)
Diese Operation kann etwas länger dauern (auch mal mehrere Stunden), abhängig von der Anzahl Transaktionen die seid dem Space Aufsetzen stattgefunden haben.
3) Anschließend müssen alle Space Mitglieder in ihren Client Installationen den Space einmal wiederherstellen. Das geht in der Regel in wenigen Minuten.
(Space -> Information -> Wiederherstellen -> Weiderherstellen)
