All Friends disappear

Postby COIP » Sat Sep 06, 2008 10:22 am

This has now happened twice with WIN v0.4.10a

all friends disappear and under network tab they are all listed as DENY.

If I click right on a denied friend in network and choose "make friend", then click "make a friend" this friend appears again in the friend tab. I have to repeat this with each friend, until they are all accepted and back in my friends tab.

Although infrequent, this is a show stopper. I have not been able to determine the cause for this.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I had similar symptomes yesterday (using version 717 from svn): suddenly my ~/.pqiPGPrc directory got wiped out probably by retroshare itself (although I'm not 100% sure). I lost everything including my private and public keys, and RS started by asking me to generate a new key. At this point the .pqiPGPrc directory lokked like it had just been created!! (almost empty, recent file times). Fortunately I do regular backups so I could retrieve my identity, but this is a little scary!

So, my advice is SAVE YOUR KEYS in a secure location.
