Windows 10 1803 Upgrade - Sync as Service - Config gone

Recommended Posts

Most likely it is not  Sync problem at all. But a very simple check you can do. Please do check if there any .logs and sync.dat files in the storage folder

of the app that were created before the system upgrade and if you didn't find them this is a system problem if you will find them this is our problem.

Where?

BTW, I had no issues upgrading to 1803 on a different machine, one that does not run Resilio Sync as a service.

Where the files you are referencing are stored, however, I figured it out.

We run this as Local System, not a user account (too much trouble having to update passwords for changing user accounts and it's not safe since it has to be an administrator).

For some reason, in the past, the config files for services were stored in C:\ProgramData\Resilio Sync Service.

But I just realized that they are now stored here:

C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Roaming\Resilio Sync Service

Which explains why the upgrade broke it, because all of those files were moved to c:\Windows.old.
