    As a general tip and to help track this, you can always Export your settings using the Tools menu -> Export, then update, then Export again and compare the two generated zip files for differences. This would also allow you to re-import anything if it were lost during the update.
    Thanks Aaron! I'll back up my settings in case it happens again.

    Do you know which version you were running and which version you updated to? Are all of your other settings in place?

    I assume you are referring to the Filter Presets in the Tools menu -> Options dialog, Folder Views section. Were they saved here with custom titles, or were they an MRU list?
    Yes, that's the correct context where my filters disappeared.

    Unfortunately, I can't recall when this happened, since I didn't notice it until just recently... it happened sometime along the way in the last few months.

    I'm running 3.3.5, latest build.

    I wish I could give more info, but I wasn't paying enough attention between updates to see when this happened. I'll let you folks know if I see it happen again, and note the specifics.

    There's always the possibility that I did something nutsy myself and deleted them by accident, but I don't recall doing that (I've had this installed on the computer this happened on since around May).

    I believe they had been saved with custom titles.

    In any case, they were filters to ignore non-essential files in Java app source trees (CVS subdirectories, generated .class files, etc.), so I was able to recreate some facsimile of them pretty easily, so it's not a great tragedy.

    All my filters disappeared!

    Hello folks...

    After the last update I did to BC3, all my custom file filters just disappeared!
    The default ones that came preinstalled are still there, however.

    Is this a known problem?
