All printer settings and materials lost


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · All printer settings and materials lost

Hello i just started cura and it showed the initial setup screen where you are forced to create a printer. Yesterday everything was fine i had my printer and all my filaments set up as materials.

The screenshot attached shows the configuration error message i get now when i start. I did not update or anything from yesterday to today just restart the pc. Maybe a auto update caused this? Is there a way to get the configurations back?




I just discovered the last profile (printsettings profile) i used is still there the other ones are lost as well as the saved materials, very strange.

Also i checked in the settings and auto update is turned off. I am running version 4.6.1

    I've recently found a bug with some profile writing that could cause the corruption (i'm not a 100% sure if I fixed it, since it happend once every few thousand saves, so it's hard to validate it). This should be fixed for 4.7


    Other than that, you can enable backups in extensions -> cura backup
