Saved Searches get Deleted by FC

#1 Post by ThomasMcA » 25.02.2020, 21:10

The last 2 or 3 versions of FC have had this problem. Version 810a 32bit in 64bit Win10 still has the same problem.

Like the Subject says, FC deletes my saved searches. Steps to reproduce:

* Press Ctrl-F
* Create search criteria
* On the Profiles pane, use the + icon to save the search
* Start using the search once/day
* This works for a few days
* After a few days, when you open your saved search list, the list is empty
* The only way to stop this from happening is to change FreeCommander.find.ini to be read-only
* After changing the ini file to be read-only, FC complains after closing the search window that it can't create the file because it's read-only
* Why in the world would it delete user settings?
* Maybe the better question is, Why in the world does it (try to) replace an existing user config with an empty, default config?

Doesn't anybody else use saved searches?

Unfortunately, your steps are not to reproduce.
As workaround - you could set auto backup settings "once per day".
