'Cannot append to a file more than a week old'.  Why? and What?

Question asked by Jason Ervin on Feb 11, 2019

I am using a Trimble Geo7x handheld to collect the locations of data points in the field.

Sometimes our projects involve several field days to complete, and there may be a week or more in between field days. We've found that Trimble will not allow us to collect new data for an 'old' file, giving the message "Cannot append to a file more than a week old". This is a problem, as we need to know where we've already collected data when we go to collect more. Can anyone explain the logic of this limitation, and suggest a solution. The first workaround that came to my mind was to save the new locations to a background image.error message merging data
