My Fidelity 15 minute data has gaps in it?!?

I just realized my 15 minute data is missing whole days worth of data?!? I don't do an update every day, since I'm still using WL4 for my production stuff. It's not just a few symbols either, it's a big percentage of them. I ended up deleting my whole 15 minute directory (2300+ symbols), and I'm starting over. Hopefully, the update will finish sometime tonite...

This feels like a bug of some sort...

If it happens again, please create a ticket and attach a couple examples of data files that are missing data. It would also be helpful to know if those symbols/scales are used actively in the Strategy Monitor, and if they appear in more than one Strategy.

Just trying to make some sense out of it.

I just updated my 5 minute data source from Fidelity and a number of symbols start about 2PM while most begin at 935. Is there any way to delete or overwrite just the last day? I have spent hours cleaning bad ticks and do not want to delete the symbol or even the entire directory.

Symbols are MDY, XLE, and XLK.

Any ideas?

Sure you can, it's .NET!
Please log in to see this code.

Now that you saved your 5-minute data excluding the ultimate trading session, all you have to do is overwrite the source data files:
