Constant corrupted file warnings

Erik | Last updated: Sep 14, 2022 05:54AM UTC

I'm working with a project and every evening I properly close burp. When I open it in the morning, it states it's corrupted. I then repair it and use the repaired copy. This procedure has gone on for three days now. I have to repair the file from yesterday that was the repaired copy of the file from two days ago. I'm a bit worried.

Thanks for your message. When you run the repair, this action is trying to recover data rather than fix corruption. Where are you storing the project file, are you saving it locally? Due to the way our persistence framework operates, we recommend using a local drive for saving project files rather than a network drive.

But it's stored locally.

Can you send an email to support@portswigger.net and tell us more about the process you're following when you recover the data and then see corruption on the new project file again? If you can also provide details about the file location, although it's local, is it being synced anywhere? How big is the project file, is it just happening with this one file? Can you also send us the output from Help -> Diagnostics for your installation of Burp, please?
