Il database e' bloccato

non vedo più il mio albero - “IL DATABASE E’ BLOCCATO” - usa l’opzione force unlock…

non capisco che cosa devo fare

fare riferimento a: Sbloccare un Albero genealogico ( aka ‘see: Unlocking a Family Tree’)

The lock prevents more than one user from touching a Gramps database file at the same time. Normally, the lock is removed when you ‘Close’ a Tree or shut down Gramps.

For this lock to cause this error message, either:

  1. another instance of Gramps is running, or
  2. Gramps terminated abnormally.

First, make certain that only only copy of Gramps is running on your multi-tasking computer & there isn’t another user on your local computer network using Gramps.

In the Family Tree => Manage Family Trees dialog, double-click the locked Tree. Then choose to break the lock.

If this fails to break the lock, it is possible to break the lock manually. It is a risky procedure. Post again if you need to resort to manual lock breaking.

i saw this way but, when i go to “manage family tre” i dont see any Tree! i think that i cancelled my tree…


Did you have the Preferences set (in the Family Tree tab) to make backups automatically? Or to Backup on exit? If so, you can create a new Tree & import the Backup. (The filepath is in that Preferences tab.)

Something bothers me: If the database is locked, you should see it in “manage family trees”
In the prefrences → Family Tree, you have “Family Tree Database path” Did you change that ?

qualcosa mi dà fastidio: se il database è bloccato, dovresti vederlo in “gestisci alberi genealogici”
Nelle preferenze → Albero genealogico, hai “Percorso database albero genealogico” L’hai cambiato?

I suspect that @ostade1954 meant that they experimented while waiting for a reply. And that one of their attempts to resolve the lock message include using the Delete/Elimina

Since Gramps deletes the DB folder (after confirming) as opposed to moving it to a recycling bin, the action would be irreversible.

(Note: amended a recent feature request to include recycling Trees. Originally, the request only asked about changing Plugin Manager deletion of Add-ons to recyclable.)

ho risolto con un po’ di calmagrazie, thanks
