QuiteRSS setting-flux disappear

Hi,
I test QuiteRSS Portable 0.12.2 as my new RSS manager. But everytime I closed software, database is swapped off. File Data/Settings/Feeds.db of 5000 Ko goes to 24Ko. Furthermore, any config settings is retained. The 3 files into File Data/Settings/ are seems to be erased after software closure.
How I can solve that?
Thanks
Mel

Built In Updater

Like most built-in updaters, QuiteRSS's doesn't understand users who launch the app with specific directives or data in specific places. They should not be used with portable software except in very specific instances and with specific caveats. Example: Firefox's updater works portably but will leave an empty directory behind on the local PC.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thanks John

Unfortunately it is totally not clear what do you say Sad Especially the QuiteRSS part. The Firefox part is more or less clear.

No Updaters

More plainly, don't use the built-in updater in any PAF app unless it's specified that you can.

The ONLY built-in updaters that can currently be used are Firefox and Thunderbird. But, even then, it's only updating the app, not the launcher (so you don't get new bug fixes) and it will leave an empty directory behind on the local machine (some people dislike this).

Sure

Thanks John,

I never use the built-in updater in any portable app.
