[Loadstone] info request about default database files

I, in the past, left my phone on overnight, plugged into wall charger while it was importing a largeish database of all suburbs in my country, but, sorry, don't know if there's any other way.

Stay well

  Hi, yes, that is the normal way  of doing it. But the file we have is large and it takes much time to import it. 
  Since we will share a map of Turkey with the blind people here, I am looking a shorter and faster way to import files or making a default database file on the computer. 
  Because loadstone crushes when we want to import files with 10-20mb in size. We tried dividing these files into several pieces but this time it crushed due to the default file size has reached a very large size. 
  And, there is a remarkable slowing when we load default files more than 10mb or more. The search action takes much time and it sometimes crushes the program while searching. 
  Another problem with importing etc is, loadstone responds very slow while importing and some talks functions like date and time and learn status do not work. 
  .when the program crushes during import, or phone's battery empties etc, the default database file is being corrupted and we need to import all the data again. 
  It sometimes takes hours, even days to import a file to the program and these are not old phones, these are faster new phones.

    Ok, then if I wanted to replace the default database, I would just go delete the current one, since then a clean/empty one would be created automatically the next time you started loadstone, and that txt file would then be put into import export subfolder, where you would then import it into the new, clean default database.

      Hello, are you sure? the file is actually not in default database format. 
      It is a file with txt extension and has been converted from a different map data. the file context is not similar to the defaults. the file context is like this:
      #!lsdb
      table,point
      name,latitude,longitude,accuracy,satellites,priority,userid,id
      "askeri bölge  istanbul (pendik)",408582200,292658200,1,0,0,58785,970782431
      "evliyaullah tan seyh kemikli hazretleri türbesi güzelyali mah pendik istan",408595300,292751300,1,0,0,58785,970782672
      "sahil dürüm evi güzelyali mah pendik istanbul ",408567800,292771900,1,0,0,58785,970782673
      "kugum pasta q güzelyali mah pendik istanbul ",408581500,292799400,1,0,0,58785,970782674
      "otel sidemo güzelyali mah pendik istanbul ",408581500,292717000,1,0,0,58785,970782675
      and goes like this. 
      now, can we just use this file just putting it into database folder by renaming it  as default?

        AFAIK, all you'd really need to do is rename the file to DEFAULT, and place it in the databases subfolder for loadstone, and there you go...

        Stay well

          Hello, we have a great map converted to loadstone format but we did not make it default. Is there a computer program to convert these txt files to loadstone default format? 
          Secondly, when the database importing aborts in any case, the default file is corrupted. is there a way to repair these files or is there any way to continue importing after abort?
