There are times where the SURVEY program does not close properly and the Matrix file has been compromised. Since the Matrix file is always open in the background when SURVEY is running when SURVEY crashes all of the updated depths are erased. We keep a backup copy of the Matrix in MXB format in the Archive Folder. 


To set a Matrix backup time in SURVEY go to Options-->Navigation Parameters. Set a MTX Backup time. 


To reclaim a bad matrix backup go to the main HYPACK Shell. Click on the Parent Folder Matrix Files. Use the last option MXB to MTX. This will get your Matrix back from the last restore point.
