I updated my trimble r10, and copied over my old template that was always set right. Everything on my normal startup screen was normal but when i got back to the office I didn't have a .to2 file. I went and checked and in the setting the base was set to rtk and not rtk + logging. Is there any way to rescue these points and have them be correct?

Not sure to be honest. Usually my here survey gets corrected by several feet. Wouldn’t I assume the current data is the same several feet off since no correction has taken place?

To be clear, how would I know if there was ppt data stored from the static base survey?

I would say no. If it was set to RTK only, then no base data file was created. I always start the R10 as a base using my phone or laptop connected by wifi. No data collector needed at the base. 

Not sure how updating the R10 would change the setting in the data collector...the survey style should always be the same, unless you mean you updated the data collector? I believe that even if you have the R10 set to automatically log data, if you use a DC to start the base and have the survey style set to RTK only it will override the setting in the R10 and shut down the base data collection. 

I wish Trimble would default to always log data at the base, I know a lot of people never do that, not sure why you would NOT want to do that even if you don't always use it. At least you could send the base file to OPUS or RTX as a check on the base position and HI 

To answer your question, connect to the receiver over wifi and you can see and download any files stored on the base

I'm trying to remember the sequence of events that cascaded down through the Trimble receivers. As I recall one of them automatically collected data as it was turned on. That was an issue for some because it filled up the memory faster than they wanted. I liked it, I used them as static control receivers back then on many projects so it was just a matter of setting them up and letting them process. Trimble listened to complaints and did some receivers that would collect on their own if you pressed a button on the front of the machine,

These days I control everything with the DC and survey styles, you have to be careful and walk through the survey style set-up and make sure it's how you want it to be. 

I have probably a dozen survey styles in my DC depending on the task and the receivers.

If you don't have the static data from the base, you're not going to be able to correct its position without returning to the site. If there are no T02/T04 files with data for that date in the base, there are no data.

Go back to to the control point your base was set up on, run a static session, post process (OPUS/TBC/whatever you desire), and then enter the corrected values as a control class coordinate for your RTK base in your TBC project. Recompute and your RTK data will be updated.

Did i read that last part right where there is a way to salvage my rover shots (8 hours worth) if I go and do another here survey, only? or do I have to redo all my rover shots too during that time period I thought the base was logging.

No, just occupy the base point, don't hit here, don't run a rtk survey, just collect static data, you don't even need a data collector. If you do use a data collector just do a fast static observation

Then process that data or send to OPUS or RTX and use the coordinate as the base coordinate.
