Local History missing

For some reason no Local History is being saved for any of my files. When I right-click on an item and select Local History, the list is empty. Is anyone else seeing this? Thanks.

Hello Rick,

We've received a number of reports for this problem, but unfortunately we
haven't been able to track down why it happens. A known workaround is File
| Invalidate Caches.

That seemed to help. I appreciate it.

Dmitry:

While invalidating the caches worked for me. It seems to be only a temporary fix. It seems that in time the index gets corrupted again. Is there any other work around for this? Thanks!

Hi -

Yesterday IDEA spontaneously announced (on the status line, I think) that the caches had become corrupt and were being rebuilt.  Today I find that I have no local history.  I had a large amount of local history on a large number of files and it was important to me.  I had hoped that your workaround would recover the history, but the dialog which appears if I choose File/Invalidate Caches says that local history will be cleared, so I haven't gone down that route.

I'm a little confused - will "invalidate caches" recover the local history or wipe it?  In what sense is it a workaround to the problem?

On previous versions, I don't believe "invalidate caches" wiped the local history did it?

Thanks.

Hello Pete,

"Invalidate caches" wipes the existing corrupted local history and allows
new local history entries to be recorded.

Hello, 'File | Invalidate Caches' doesn't work for me, even if I restart.  I'm not sure when's the last time I saw it working, but it definitely was not working for me in 11.1.1 and so I updated to EAP 11.1.3 to see if it was fixed for my case, but it wasn't, and then an error popped up in that version:

InvalidVirtualFileAccessException: Accessing invalid virtual file: file:////<my home directory>/.IntelliJIdea11/config/port: Accessing invalid virtual file: file:////<my home directory>/.IntelliJIdea11/config/port


Would anyone happen to know if this is relevant to Local History always being empty for me or not?  and, if yes, what could I do about it? (i.e. before waiting for a JetBrains fix - I submitted the error report)  Thanks!
