Thanks. I tried that and still could not retrieve the data. history still does not show the ride details. This is not the first time..... but I really wanted to know the data for this morning's ride.
I have made the mistake in the past of connecting before resetting. First thing to do would be to check if there is a file for the activity at all. When you connect the garmin it should show up as a drive on your PC (can't confirm what happens on a mac so this may only be relevent on a PC). If you browse that drive under Garmin there is an Activities folder. Within that are all the activity files with the format of year-month-day-hour-minute-second.fit. If the file is there you may still be in luck as it may just be missing a bit of data that Garmin Connect needs but another program doesn't. It was a while ago that I did it and I can't remember exactly what worked but make sure as well as trying Garmin Connect you try the Garmin Training Centre software (the one that get's installed on your PC) and also give strava a go. One of those worked for me.
