Hi, I recently installed playonmac to help me install metatrader4 onto my mac. I installed it but had trouble finding the Mt4 ikon i found it in the playonmac virtual drive ok. It seemed to be working ok. I think i then copied the mt4 ikon directly onto my mac desktop attempting to cretae a shortcut link.

 

I then noticed that most of my ikons and contents of my desktop and documents folder had disappered! 

 

Any thoughts to what may have happened, can i getvthe files back, they seem to have disapperaed! thanks.

It looks like a Buffer overflow issue sad.


It is the script you used ? : Metatrader 4 (I mean did you install by clicking 'Metatrader 4' listed in POL ?).

Note: I updated the script (see the CHANGELOG) and added a warning.

Hi @Mathewbet1,

First of all, I am very sorry about this experience. In order to investigate what could have happen, can you exactly and precisely describe all the steps you have done with PlayOnMac?

Thank you,

Quentin

 Dadu - Yes I clicked on the  'Metatrader 4' listed in POL  .

 

1) Installed play on mac as normal

Im on Macbook Air - OSX El Captain, version 10.11.6

The play on mac version is : 01.33.01

 

2) I first tried to load MT4 from a file I had downloaded on to my PC, 

3) i then tried clicking on the Metatrader 4 listed in the POL, this seemed to work , but there were some warning/ error messages, but MT4 just loaded up and started working.

4) One thing i did was copy the MT4 exe onto my desktop, attempting to create a desktop short cut. that when i notices all my desk top items and items from my documets folder had disappered.

 

 

Do you guys know of the documnets are possible to restore? I tried some restore software with deep scan but it looks like the files have gone, any help apprciated. Thank you.
