Identifying hazelrulesdb file Fri Feb 08, 2019 2:34 am • by jonxfm
I have a set of rules on a folder that worked perfectly for a while, but has stopped working. Using the exact same rules in a test scenario, it works as expected. I've deleted the rules and re-added them but the problem persists.

Are these .hazelrulesdb and .hazeldb files associated with specific folders? I'm thinking my next step should be to remove any files associated to this specific folders rules, and re-add them in case it's reading the same (maybe corrupted) application support files. I want to avoid deleting the entire application support directory, as I'd have to re-create many rules for other folders.

These rules include copying over certain files. I should add that when the problem first started, it copied over some files that are ruled against and then stopped copying entirely. This is what leads me to believe something got corrupted. I'm using the 'date added is after date last matched' rule, so I think whatever db it's using to determine previously matched files got messed up.

Before messing with anything, you should do more diagnostics. Go through the troubleshooting guide here: ... ing-guide/

You might want to turn on debug logging on first:
