Restore Knime workflows

Continuing the discussion from Restore Knime Workflow:

Hi, I have a similar issue. But when I switch the workspace to the folder with the old workflows, they do not show up as proper workflows in Knime, but more like a tree of folders with subfolders for each node:


Any clues if & how this can be fixed? Thx/Evert

I can offer up these threads. Unfortunately if the workflows would not integrate themselves into KNIME like this you might have to revert to a backup.

Can you tell us more about your system and the circumstance where the data is being stored (is it some sort of cloud drive?).

The data is stored on MicroSoft Onedrive. I take it this is part of the problem?


Hi , if you look into your MS Onedrive where your workflows are stored, do you see other files such as the .metadata file in there, or just the workflow folders?

There is a .metadata folder as well.

I fear this could be the case. I have seen several problems with KNIME workflows and OneDrive. For once there seem to be limitations on the characters that can be used in OneDrive depending on the admin settings and the version (academic. etc seems to have different default settings). The workflows might work first but would later be corrupted - this might especially be true if you try to transfer data KNIME workflows via OneDrive.

One (not good) option could be to try and reconstruct the original names of the files and folders - but it might be you will have to rely on a backup.

I have used DropBox with KNIME without issue.
