Is there a way to read the contents of a .duf file

Hello All,

In moving some files around to create some space on my hard drive, I think I might have misplaced some very important files needed for some very important characters I have created.  When I load one of the characters, I get this in my log file:

The list goes on, but you get the idea.   It is looking for the /data/DAZ 3D folder.   Now here is the kicker,  I had changed my hard drive three times and naturally the drive letter along with it.  I have looked on my system and there are no less than six /data/DAZ 3D folders and I had set the content library directory manager to point to these folders, but alas, to no avail.  So I am wondering if there might be more /data/DAZ 3D folders on my system.  However, because the log file doesn't show the full path or drive letter, that makes things incredibly difficult.

I had must have accidentally delted the origial path the .duf file points too and while I do have back ups of the files, the problem is putting the files back into the proper directory.   So I figure the only way to do that is to find out exactly what the .duf file is pointing to, and for that I need to know if there is a way to read the contents of the file.

I tried to read the file with a standard text editor, but I just get gibberish.

Any help would be much appreciate as a great many of my old characters, some of them very important, I cannot access right now.

Thank you,

Geo

    If you see gibberish in the text editor, that means the file is compressed and can be opened with 7-Zip (Open Archive). Notepad++ is free and very good text editor for looking at the contents.

    But... You don't get any more information within the file, as the paths inside the file are still relative.

    If you search your drives for the missing files with Windows Explorer, does it find them and are they located in a content library that you have specified in Content Directory Manager?

    7-Zip did work and I could read something, but it is still very convoluted and I cannot make out too much.  However, I did see that it is still making vague references as there is no drive letter and it starts the folder hierachy  with the data folder.   However, I managed to find which directory that started with data/DAZ 3D that was missing the jukingeo folder, which was my personal folder.   I thought that folder only contained custom morphs that I had made myself.   Since it was 11gig, I removed it and that was the problem as it seems that the folder also contained references to just about every earlier character I created with version 4.15 (which I am still on).   While I did make a recent backup, it wasn't from this folder as I thought that my files were elsewhere.   This is the big problem I am having with Daz Studio's directory structure and what makes things worse is that they changed it roughtly around the time of version 4.12.   The folder used to be called My Library and now it is called My DAZ 3D Library.    Well, once I had found out what happened, I did use the latest backup I had on hand, which sadly was from about November of 2021.   For the most part, it did work, and many of my older 4.15 characters have been restored, or at least mostly restored.   There are still some that are missing quite a bit of info.   I...didn't know that personal stuff was stored in that morph folder outside of custom morphs I made.    Here is one of my newer characters I created and the message that has come up for it:

    data/daz 3d/genesis 8/female body favorites/genesis8female.dsf

    data/daz 3d/genesis 8/female/morphs/jukingeo/product/fbmbodybuilderdetails.dsf

    data/daz 3d/genesis 8/female/morphs/jukingeo/product/pbmnavel.dsf

    data/daz 3d/genesis 8/female/morphs/jukingeo/product/pctrlrhandgrasp.dsf

    data/daz 3d/genesis 8/female/morphs/jukingeo/product/phmmouthrealism_hd_div2.dsf

    data/daz 3d/genesis 8/female/morphs/jukingeo/voluptuous toned body/rfmc_neck folds.dsf

    data/daz 3d/genesis 8/female/morphs/jukingeo/voluptuous toned body/xctrlbiceps.dsf

    data/daz 3d/genesis 8/female/morphs/jukingeo/voluptuous toned body/xpbmadamsapple.dsf

     

    The ones that have the folder "voluptuous toned body" was one of my custom morphs.   Now what follows after is weird as the .dsf files are NOT custom morphs.  Further, I have not used the Voluptuous Toned Body morph that I created in a VERY long time.  Yet this was from a fairly recent character I created.    Now moving up to the second item from the top, the file there is fbmbodybuilderdetails.dsf.  That is the morph that came with Daz Studio.  Also, the last one is part of a known package that I have downloaded and I have used that morph often.   Now, why are they in my jukingeo folder instead of being referenced by that the artist that created it's folder?

    I think I should have delved deeper into why my jukingeo folder was using up 11 gig of space as I figured it was just my custom morphs.   Now I am not sure what I am going to do.  But worse, I am curious to why Daz stored just about ALL my character morph adjustements in the data/daz 3d/genesis 8/female/morphs/jukingeo/voluptuous toned body path.  Thankfully because I did have that backup from 2021, and restored the jukingeo folder back to My DAZ 3D Library folder, many of the broken links have been fixed, but not all.   I am wondering if some of the data is linked elsewhere.   That is the problem with how the log file reports the issue is that I cannot see the full path and I was hopeing that looking into the .duf file would help me but it doesn't.

    This is really a big convoluted mess as I am trying to figure things out to create more space on my hard drive to remove figure packages in the hopes of speeding up loading times for Genesis 8 Female figures.   I know there is stuff that is duplicated and I been carefully trying to remove what is not needed, however, what is going in in the morphs/jukingeo folder took me by surprise.  I don't get why the .duf file is moving a copy of the morph to the jukingeo folder when, by right, it should be referencing it from the artist's folder.

    Another thing that dawned on me was that since I had deleted the main /data/DAZ 3D/Genesis 8/Female/Morphs/jukingeo folder, and that was where all my character morphs were seemed to be stored.  Where is Daz storing the new characters I created?

    I am not sure if any of this is making sense, as I am finding it difficult to grasp myself.

     

    Thanks,

    Geo

    If you save a character/morph as morph asset, and there are dialed in morphs included in getting the right shape, all the dialed in morphs will be saved into your folder.

    Saving something as an asset is an easy way to mess up ones content libraries and break the base characters that are used by everything.

    The name of the content directory doesn't matter, nothing Daz Studio puts in a .duf file relating to files in a content diectory cares what the content directory is called or where it is located, all it records is the location within the content directory (starting at data or Runtime usually). My Daz 3D Library is the default for Install Manager and appeared alongside Install Manager - My Library is still the default for user files.

    When you save a morph asset the content directory to use iss et at the top of the options dialogue, then the Author and Product entries determine the folder names to use within the figure's Morphs folder (and when saving a figure or prop those determine the folder names within the root data folder).

    I usually save a character as a "scene" and all the .duf files of new characters I create are in there.   Those files are backed up to the current month and are VERY recent.  THAT is why I thought that was enough and didn't know there was more to it that that.  When I thought of the Morphs folder, I thought that was just the stored morphs that load up each time a Genesis (which is usually Genesis 8 Female) figure is loaded up.  So I didn't back that folder up as regularly.

    Now I am worrying that for those older version 4.15 files, that those figures are now permanently "damaged".    Anything older, version 4.12, and my current stuff from the past couple months seems to be OK with my restoring the data/DAZ 3D/jukingeo folder this morning.  But again, it was an older version that I had backed up last year, so it isn't current.

    I am really afraid that it is lost, unless I happen to find another copy among the six data/DAZ 3D folder threads I found.   This is also just the beginning as I still have to deal with my hard drive issue as either I have to create space on it, or I have to move it all to a larger drive once again.

    Edit:  I had loaded up another character that was affected by the "jukingeo folder disaster" as I am calling it now.   In studying the files Daz is looking for, I had noticed something:

    Going towards the end of each path line, the .dsf files it is calling for are NOT deleted files.  Those are still on my system, but again, I didn't know that Daz created this file substructure and that saving a .duf file wasn't enough.  But I am wondering if it is possible to restablish these file links.  The only thing is that I worry it might be very time consuming.  Sadly though, I was under the misconception that the Voluptuous Toned Body path just contained an 11gig morph.  When I saw that, I found it alarming and it is the main thing that motived me to remove it.  I mean it is inside the MORPH folder.   I just didn't know that Daz was stuffing vital information every time I created a new character in the jukinge/VoluptuousTonedbody folder.

    Here is something interesting when I loaded up another character today and received this missing file list:

    What I find odd about this is that it seemed to load EVERY expression for Alexandria Happy, Alexandria Sad, Alexandria Angry, and Alexandria Surprised.  Now that is impossible, I know fr a face that I wouldn't dial all those in at one time.  I might have used one of them.   So I don't get what is going on here.

    Here is something interesting when I loaded up another character today and received this missing file list:

    When you saved the character, those expressions were still in the location they no longer are. It isn't about having those expressions dialed in.

    The morphs have to be loaded to get the information so that they can be in the Parameter lists, if theya re not set to a non-zero value on loading then the actual shaping data (which is the biggest chunk) is not kept. But you should not have duplicates of propietary morphs in there anyway, so I don't know what is happening.

    One way to get them there is to save a character as an asset and selecting everything on the list.

    With "Morph Asset" it doesn't have to be a character morph either, any morph or even an empty CTRL asset, if they select everything rather than drilling down through the layers to find and select just their dial, then DS will save a copy of everything in the Morphs folder to the new "Product" folder.

    If it's not caught early then you get left with a cluster**** for a data folder, and fixing it can be a nightmare even for someone with my knowledge.

    I would have been hoping that you might shed some light on the situation as you are the main Daz Studio guru here.  When I load a character, there are no duplicated morphs in the list under Parameters and Shaping tabs. However, in terms of FOLDERS on my system, then yeah, I have noticed several  data/Daz 3D folders   Worse, I have seen data/Daz3D folders without the space.  Then somewhere around the transistion from Daz 4.12 to 4.15,  they changed My Library to My Daz 3D Library.  However, it was because of this that I was able to find an older data/Daz 3D folder string and was able to restore some of my characters.

    What I am worried about is that with these extra data/Daz 3D folders that Daz Studio is taking up way more space than it should on my hard drive. This has me worried that when I upgrade to 4.2 as to what THAT version is going to do with the directory structure.

    I guess you took a look at those folder paths, right?   It seems that every time I save a character, it is dumping a bunch of morph files into the data/Daz 3D/jukingeo directory.  In the missing files that I posted above, I sometimes see the same ones that it cannot find, yet the morphs themselves are still on my system.   So, really, if you don't know what is going on, I for sure don't.

    The thing is, if the morphs are not saved with the scene when I save one, what is being saved there?

    Thanks,

    You lost me there.  I figured that if the morph isn't used, or dialed into anything, why is it saving it to the jukingeo folder?

    Lets just say I am at the clusterf*** stage.as I am only discovering this now.    I know I shortened the path above, but the full path is My Daz 3D Library/data/Daz 3D/Genesis8/Female/Morphs/jukingeo.  That is the main path.  I had went into Content Directory Manager, and turned off all the other paths.  Yes, I had tested them to be sure they weren't affecting the results, which they don't and it is how I come upon the conclusion that I did, indeed lose some important data here.

    Now, opening up that jukingeo folder, there are two folders inside one labeled Product and the other Voluptuous Toned Body.  The latter was, indeed, a custom morph I created.  So opening that up, I found a huge list of morphs in there.  A place that I was under the assumption that all those morphs shouldn't be.  Since I figured that it was all for the one Voluputous Toned Body morph and it was taking up 11gig, I deleted it.   So naturally when I loaded up older figures, I was greated with those fine file missing messages that I posted above.

    So I have no idea, why in the H*ll Daz Studio is storing all my character morphs there.  Should the character morphs come from the artist's folder that created them?  Or shouldn't they be saved with a scene?  At least that is what I would assume.   Why it is doing this, I have no idea.   But it looks like now I have to regularly backup this jukingeo folder now.

    I was ready to update to Daz version 4.2, but now I am not so sure if I should do so as I don't know what it will do behind my back.   I have invested in characters going back to 2018 when I first started with Daz.  So this is a serious loss.  Thankfully, I was able to save some of the important characters and create a new base from them.   But many scenes are pretty much toast.

    Another thing I find odd in the case of a character that I was able to save.  A whole list of files comes up, but yet, when the character loads, she appeared fine.  In this case, I just resaved the file as "Save As" right over the old one and the saved file the loads without the missing file errors.

    Yet, there are other scenes, where the character is so corrupted, almost none of the morphs that created her work.

    Oh!  I forgot to mention that this is ONLY happening with Genesis 8 Female characters as that is the only character base where the jukingeo folder exists.

    I don't know if you or any of the other fellows can help with with my characters, but I just want a better understanding of what is going on here so I know what I can and cannot delete.

    Thank you,

    Presumably the version without the space is a typo when saving.

    Documents/Daz 3D/Studio/My Library is the default location for Daz Studio 4 content, Public Documents/My Daz 3d Library is the default location for Install Manager. Neither name has any fucntional significance, and neither should appear in paths in saved files (those should store only the location within the content directory, whatever it is called and wherever it is).

    There is nothing wrong with having /data folders in multiple content directories (other than speed in resolving relative paths). Any morph in a data folder in an active content diectory will be found unless there is a second file with the same name in a content directory further up the list.

    What I am worried about is that with these extra data/Daz 3D folders that Daz Studio is taking up way more space than it should on my hard drive. This has me worried that when I upgrade to 4.2 as to what THAT version is going to do with the directory structure.

    That is because you are selecting those morphs (or failing to deselect them) when saving, which I thought had already been covered)

    The thing is, if the morphs are not saved with the scene when I save one, what is being saved there?
