I spoke too soon. I later rebooted my Mac after a software upgrade on my Drobo. After that, WeatherCat locks up downloading data from the USB Data Logger. It gets anywhere from 3% to 20% and then beachballs. I're rebooted, replaced the prefs with older prefs, etc. But no joy.

Suggestions?

I too am noticing that since I updated  to the newest version, I get about 23% downloading and it freezes up.    Can I get the previous version back or a copy of it, if whatever the problem is and can't be fixed.  I am losing valuable weather data.
I have  even completely removed and then re installed the program and it still stalls on the download.  So I got a brilliant idea and used a different logger (an IP) and it did the same thing.   

I even used the time machine to go back to an earlier time... and nope, no way, no place.  something is corrupt.
I am using Mojave , Fusion with the new APFS for fusion.

I also have the "Downloading Historical Data from Station" lock up. it gets about 10% (sometimes a little above or below) and locks up. Weather cat has not worked since 10/7/18. I've rebooted several times. It automatically restarts and I've force quit about 50 times now... bummer...Good luck finding the issue! I love the software!

@weatheraarvark and @jenkins007:

This morning I grabbed 3.0.1 from last Thursday's Time Machine backup. (I upgraded to 3.0.2 on Friday.) I deleted the active .plist file, rebooted, and stuck my archived .plist in the preference folder, rebooted again for good measure, and then launched WeatherCat 3.0.1

I initially thought it wasn't working, because I got the beachball and no progress showing in the progress bar. But after a few minutes, it finished downloading, and was working like normal.

By the way, I'd also tried deleting my .plist file completely, rebooting and running WeatherCat 3.0.2 as a new user, and it still locked on downloading data. So it wasn't a borked preference file.

Stu, Like Weatheraardvark, I also have a Fusion drive with the new file system on Mojave. Could there be something odd with that configuration?

About 3 am this morning, I had the idea to start over.  I deleted everything Weathercat.  I also cleared the archive in the logger.  I "think" it works.  I have data saved but as I say now, it is starting over from scratch .  and I don't know if that will fix it in the long run

Steve, that issue of the non-progressing progress bar on 3.0.1 is a known issue, but with patience, as you discovered, it actually works.

running 3.0.2 weather cat on Mac 10.13.6

Did you try to wait some 10 minutes or so? Maybe only the progress BAR is not responding but the progress goes on?  :-[

  I left mine going about six hours .  I set it going before I went to bed and about six hours later we had not moved off the planet.

Yep, I know. It has been going on for several versions for me, so I was familiar. Waiting 30 minutes or more on 3.0.2 and still locked up though was not a good thing. :)

Did you go back to 3.0.1? That's working fine for me. Got it from my Time Machine, but also had it on my external Drobo.
