Data Files Loss

I just installed (April 9, 2021) a "Required Update" to Portable App which I keep on a flash drive and during the installation virtually all of my data files were deleted from the flash drive. I would be very careful with the update and recommend not installing it until a further explanation is provided by the software developer.

Please provide some additional details including your operating system, full install path, etc. If you did a platform update (which was released back in September), are you sure it was installed to the same location? If you install it to a PortableApps sub directory (so Start.exe is inside there) it can get confused about what its root is. The platform update doesn't alter data files for any apps.

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