    Deleting Bagage files

      I am forced to use baggage files more then I would like, but they usually server me well, until recent. I have recently ran into an issue where the baggage files wont let me delete them. I know there cannot be a refrence to the file or it will not let you, but there are no references and the option is not even avaliable on the menu. Any ideas why this would happen or ways to remove them?

          Greetings fellow matt

          Perhaps you can use something fellow ACE Peter Grainge has on his site. Just work your way backwards.

          You are interested in Snippet number two, near the page bottom.

          Sincerely... Rick

            Have you done a multi file find and replace through your topics searching for that file name? I suspect you will find it somewhere albeit not visible in your pages.

              Peter, I have had troubles accessing your site for the past few days. Any suggestions? I cannot even access your www.grainge.org main site.

                Hi wiz

                Basically, you need to edit the rhbag.apj file with your project closed. It's a pain but works, just backup your project before you start. As Rick says, follow the instructions but delete the the file from the rhbag.apj file. I vaguely seem to recal a trick of renaming the file that appears in the baggage folder before trying to delete it. Good luck.

                From Pete's site:

                "In X5, in addition to the usual way of adding baggage files, you can edit the rhbag.apj file. With the project closed, open the file in a text editor such as Notepad and copy / paste an existing section. Replace the name of the baggage file with the new one.

                When adding javascript files to topics, RH should automatically add them to baggage. Often it does not. To avoid having to edit the rhbag.apj file in such cases, I add the js file to baggage manually before inserting the reference. In the long run, it's easier."

                  I have accessed the site two or three times a day and it has been OK. Post again if trouble persists.
