Sidebar resets

I've been using Path Finder for years and something that keeps happening is that my favorites in the sidebar resets now and then. I'm currently on the latest version of 10.2 on MacOS Monterrey, but this has been happening in previous versions of both MacOS and Path Finder. I saw that this issue was posted here a couple of years ago, any potential fix upcoming? Saving favorites is a great feature but it's frustrating that you have to set them up every other day/week.

    Hi there,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    I apologize for the inconveniences you’ve had. The issue of loss of Favorites is already reported to our developer, and we’ll make sure to address it in the next releases.

    Could you please specify if there is any specific action set you do before your Sidebar favourites are lost?

    In the meantime, we would highly suggest saving your modules settings. You can do so by clicking on cogwheel of Sidebar > clicking on Settings drop-down button at the bottom > Save.

    Then, copying your preferences folder and the file within it to your Desktop, for example.

    ~/Users/your_username/Library/Application Support/Path Finder/Settings (folder) ~/Users/your_username/Library/Preferences/com.cocoatech.PathFinder.plist (list) 

    If the next loss occurs, you would be able to restore it within the following location by copying the folder with the preference file to the corresponding place.

    Let me know should you have any other questions!

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
