I recently upgraded my Mac to High Sierra. After doing so, I learned that there was no way to use BC Classic with High Sierra.
BC Support recommended that I set up a virtual machine, install Sierra there, run BC Classic in Sierra, and recover the files.
I haven't done that (yet), but here is what I did do: I installed BC Classic on another computer in my house that is running Sierra. I then connected to my Dropbox account and navigated to the BC Classic folder. I thought I'd solved the problem, but...
All of my files from 2015 onward were missing.
I don't understand why this happened, but I have a theory. In 2015, I installed OSX El Capitan, and that's what I was running until I decided to upgrade to High Sierra. BC Classic must have never been fully supported by El Capitan and those files must not have really been saved anywhere... except locally. Is this a plausible theory?
A coder buddy of mine used Terminal to check the contents of the locked down BC Classic folder that is still visible in High Sierra but unmountable. Terminal displayed the same thing: a limited number of folders that only contained stuff that I saved inside BC Classic until some time in 2015. This leads me to believe that I wouldn't have any luck even if I were to run VirtualBox on my computer, install an older OSX version, and try to recover the files. But is there a chance?
I suspect my files are gone for good, but does anyone have any idea whether they exist somewhere?
