project file not saved

BB | Last updated: Aug 08, 2019 12:55PM UTC

Burp 2.1.02 is not saving my project files. Latest case, I worked until 6PM yesterday then shut everything down. When boot up and open the Burp project file today, all of my afternoon work is gone. I have it configured to do automatic backups every 30 minutes to a folder next to the one where my working file is. The timestamp on the main project file is 11:34 The timestamp of the most recent *backup* is 11:46 There are only four backup files 09:36 10:07 10:46 11:46 I'm running Burp on a Windows 10 VM. I installed it with the installer. The project file is on a shared folder. The actual folder is on my Ubuntu host, mapped to a shared folder in VMWare Workstation. I mention this in case it's relevant, but this is how I've used Burp 1.x for years, successfully. Any ideas what might cause that?

Data should be saved incrementally into the file as you work. Do you see any errors in the Burp Event log? Do you have performance feedback enabled (User options > Misc > Performance feedback)? If so, could you provide us with your diagnostics (Help > Diagnostics)?

I've uninstalled the 2.x version and reverted to 1.7 for the rest of this test, so don't have access to those things anymore.
