    Merging projects

    I'm currently working on a group coding exercise in which we are 3 reviewers who are simultaneously working in independent copies of the project and then merging when appropriate. However, I'm about to do a new merge and I want to make sure that I'm doing it right. Basically, I am the lead coder. Once I've finished coding my files, a secondary reviewer adds to my codes and may modify or delete my codes where appropriate. Say we have two sets of files: Set A and Set B. I have coded sets A and B. The secondary reviewer has just finished reviewing my codes on set A and is ready to move to set B. So we need to merge copies so that she has my codes from the Set B files, but without adding back in any codes that she may have deleted from Set A. I thought I could choose to only merge coding from specific files in the project, but NVivo isn't giving me that option. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to do this? Thank you!
  2. Hi all, As seems to be a very common issue with NVivo, my NVivo 12 crashed while I was working on it (I was working on my local desktop, not a network; saving regularly; my computer did not lose internet connection - so I was following all the "rules of safe NVivo engagement"). I've tried to reopen my file, but get an error message; on my third try opening the file it successfully opened, but wouldn't load any of my files. I can see that the nvb backup file is in my documents folder, with a timestamp of a couple hours ago - but I can't figure out how to use it to recover my actual NVivo file and I can't find any guidance on the QSR website. I'm hopeful that it's still possible to recover my work. Any tips that you all have found to successfully recover would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Charlotte
