QRecall remembers the location of both archives and items to be captured using aliases. These are the same alias records created by the Finder when you make an Alias file.
However this morning I was notified that QRecall was unable to find its archives on that disk.
I suspect that AppleJack has changed something that OS X was using to identify known volumes. This would also explain why your icons changed (since OS X now thinks these are new, never before seen, volumes). You might check to see if you have any other aliases to items on your external volume. They might be suffering from the same problem.
You can probably rectify this by editing your actions. Open the action, reselect the same archive (creating a new alias to the archive) and save the updated action.
Yikes! /var/db/volinfo.database is not a transient file. I would definately alert the AppleJack authors about this one.
One of the important bits of information stored here is which volumes use POSIX Ownership and Privileges and which ones don't. Erasing this file could cause volumes that previously enforced file ownership and privileges to suddenly stop using them and visa versa.
I don't either. I think AppleJack just gave OS X a case of amnesia and it no longer remembers volumes that it's seen in the past.
I don't see anything QRecall related in there, but what do I know.
