I updated my Bisq v1.65 to v1.7.0 as recommended by Bisq. I also backed up my v1.6.5 Data file as recommended. The update was installed and I now have a totally dysfunctional Bisq application. I have no login, no trade history, and no wallet (unfortunately for me I forgot to empty my wallet before going ahead with the upgrade to v1.7.0). The bisq community has been very helpful in the past but I am still not able to recover my v1.6.5 Data. My understanding of the Bisq instructions for restoring the data file in my Ubuntu 21.0.4 list these steps:
- Make sure Bisq is closed
- Copy the entire [Bisq] directory from the Data Backup (/Home/user_name/snap/bisq-desktop/bisq_backup_2021---******) and paste it into the computer default data directory location (/Home/user_name/.local/share/Bisq/). If there already exists a directory called[Bisq] remove it and replace it with the Data Backup.
I have searched my Home directory for the (/Home/user_name/.local/share/Bisq/) directory without results. Can you tell me what directory I should look for in v1.7.0 so that I may replace it with the Data backup I made from my v1.6.5 Bisq. Will this Data be compatible with v1.7.0? If not, can you tell me how I may recover or reinstall v1.6.5 so that I may paste the v1.6.5 Data backup into that version and, hpoefully, recover my login, wallet, and trade history?
Thank you for your help.
