Empty config file


#1

Today the status display no longer showed any inputs or outputs, which is why I restarted the device once (power supply interrupted). It then showed the catch-all panic code light sequence red-red-red. At first I thought that probably the SD card failed, but it turned out that the access to the SD card still works fine with a computer, but the config.txt was empty. I copied the template from Github into it (https://github.com/boblemaire/IoTaWatt/blob/master/SD/config.txt) and now it runs again.

Now I ask myself how the config could be deleted and if I still have access to the stored values?

This is the log file:
