Raspbian restart deleted settings and folders

Recommended Posts


I've recently moved from Sync to Resilio on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian.

I had to restart the computer it's installed on and now when I go to the WebGui there aren't any of the settings or folders I had configured. This includes the licence file to upgrade to Pro.

I followed the instructions at: https://help.getsync.com/hc/en-us/articles/206178924 and all of the folders  being synced are owned by the same user.

Is there anything I can do to refresh to the previously set settings or is there anything I have overlooked in the install to prevent this happening next time I restart?  

Resilio and it's predecessor are great and I use it all the time.  I don't want to migrate away from it if settings don't persist after a restart!

For Sync to use the same settings, it shall be looking and the same storage every time it starts - either to the .sync in current directly, or in "stoarage_path" in config. 
Unfortunately, we don't know how you were launching BitTorrent and Resilio Sync, but the key point here is to use the same storage. 
If you were installing package in both cases, then storage is used automatically. 

if you were using a binary and moved to package, or vice versa, then new storage will be created. Or if you used a different config file, etc.  So any details on your setup would be helpful here.
