URGENT: All data lost after renaming container in KiteMatic


(B3rlin) #1

I am running a container with MS SQL Server (mssql-server-linux). I created a database, created several tables and stored quite important data for a migration in it. For 2 weeks everything was working fine. I used Kitematic (0.13.0) to start / stop the container, and was working with an SQL client most of the time.

Then, I renamed the container in KiteMatic using the “settings” panel, “Container Info” section. The container restarted, and ALL DATA WAS GONE.

Quite shocking, can easily be reproduced: after each rename & restart, all persisted data in the container will be gone. ist this expected behavior? Any way to get my database back?

I am using Docker Version 1.13.1 (15353) and on El Capitan (Mac OS x 10.11.6)

This happened to me as well, luckily it was just a test db.

Yea I tried kitematic once and bam it deleted my entire container, nowhere to be found. Truly shocking.
