My config file became broken because of the forced PC power off. When I start Strokesplus I get error message:

Error loading Program settings.

Binary stream 0! does not contain a valid BinaryHeader. Possible causes are
invalid stream or object version change between serialization and deserialization,

And the program doesn't load.

The file size looks plausible - 171kb which is close to my old config backup file size of 160kb.

So is there any way to restore the last state of the config file or export last changes to the old backup cfg?

If it's a file, I'm not really sure if there's a way. But see if there's another (guid) file in the folder, as in theory the code is supposed to write out the temp file, replace the old one, then verify and delete the GUID file.

The file is plain text and could be reconstructed.

Easiest way to prevent is to login from the tray icon and your settings will be saved online for recovery or downloading from another computer.

Alternatively, you can add script in your Unload tab to make backups each time you exit.
