I moved my /config folder on my qBittorrent Nox docker container, which caused everything inside my qbittorrent Nox to disappear completely, hundreds of torrents wiped out. I copied the original config files from the previous location directly onto the new location of /config, but still it seems like all my stuff is gone.
How do I load my stuff back in?
You’ve not provided enough info for us to help you. I suggest providing your original compose and your updated compose (with new /config path)
The current compose is this:
- TZ=Mexico City
The previous one was identical in all ways except that the path for /config was " - /AppData/qbittorrent:/config". All I have done is move the config path and then execute "cp -r “/AppData/qbittorrent” “/home/drambit/.config”.
I tried changing the path back to the previous one and it all my information filled back in to qbittorrent right away, perhaps I copied it incorrectly to the new location?
could be some symlinks or something (i dont personally use qbit so i dont know the structure there) perhaps try rsync instead?
rsync -avhLK /AppData/qbittorrent /home/drambit/.config
and see if it yields better results?
I tried your command exactly, it seems to have gone off without a hitch, but after changing the location of the config in the compose it has gone back to being wiped again. Must be something weird going on here.
