If my system crashes for some reason while TheBrain is open, then after a restart of the system all my settings of TheBrain are gone. I have to reenter each and every setting (pins, colors, etc.). This happend four or five times this year and was a real nuisance.

Don't you save the save the settings while TheBrain is open, so that the settings file can not be destroyed when the system crashes?

Yes, preferences are saved live and as a backup in C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\TheBrain

That doesn't always help!
When the system crashes and TheBrain autostarts with the next system start, the preferences are gone forever, because the one and only (!) backup of the settings is overwritten automatically. TheBrain does not recognize if it was closed abnormally.
(Just happened again.)

Reinhard,

There is a .xml and a .bak. The .bak is a backup of your preferences.

It's the .bak that causes the problems. It only contains NULs (lots of them).
The .xml is completely gone.

Reinhard,

Have you tried removing those files and starting over? If so, and the issue still occurs, can you please send us a copy of both files. It sounds like there is some issue on your end but I will have our engineers take a look at those files in case they are able to find anything in them.
