I don't think steps 1/2/3 are needed. From what I experienced so far, doing a /logout after you do changes is enough. Whenever they reset, just do another relog and they come back

As expected, even doing the "unnecessary" steps doesn't prevent them from disappearing and re-logging does nothing.
Thanks for trying, though. Cheers.

did you follow the steps exactly?

dont be a troll.

this worked for many people.

make sure you took ownership and disabled "ReadOnly".

such comment is not accepted. it is impossible.

Update @ 15-08-2017, 18:19:34

by "unnecessary" steps. what are you pointing at? the Preparations or [saving settings each time]?

re-logging is not the answer. the point is the log into another character and log back to the main character.

Well, it may work so you don't lose your settings permanently, like get your settings deleted, like it happened to some, but if you get a disconnect, it still resets everything until you relog, which happened until you did all this anyway.
So the real problem that needs fixing are the frecvent random disconnects and errors.

basically yea.

even retail players lose all UI settings when they disconnect.

but i STRONGLY suggest to relog after making an important change to Interface. you never know! you might get Disconnected.

I dont know where i've read it but someone mentioned to relog on an Alt (if you have one) to "fix" this bug. Tried it and that works for me, maybe for you too.

Greetings, Charm

read only its pointless since the whole drive has it by default, you apply it removes it and when you go properties again there is Read only again set, also after launcher get drunk and start on drugs once u get DC ... it removes everything, channels, confs, setting and sometimes macros, its a client/server bug nothing players can do about it, its up to devs.

this only works for ppol that has permission in the wrong way.

hello

i wished you had a bit of knowledge regarding Read Only and stuff.

you can also google: "OMG Read Only Not Getting removed"

..---..---

simplified answer:

once you do it, it is unchecked forever. unless touched by Third-party apps.

the box that appears in properties does not show the exact attribute anymore.

Read Only's box is Shown with a square by default. meaning: "not all files are ReadOnly"

which is normal.

---

also, this method worked for every players. there is no exception.
if you SOMEHOW HAPPENED to lose all settings after doing all the shit i've wrote, it's probably an effect of a third-party app such as DeepFreeze or 'some AntiVirus Restore function on restart'.
it could be a malware too... a few worms are known to do that. or ransomware.

that's basically what i've said. (from 'another character', i meant 'alt' too)

that 'someone' was an awesome person. xD

as shocked claimed,

THAT SPECIFIC type of data-loss can be fixed by a Relog.

example:

you did preprations, you've done [saving settings each time], BUT you still got disconnected* and in a very Rare case, you cant see your settings upon logging in.

*: usually hardware crash will cause it. things like Forced ShutDown.

to fix that, log out, and log in again. (relog)

--

that will 'awaken' your settings from the underworld. xD
