I have been using Docker community edition for about I year now and I think I have good working knowledge of how to use it.
I have created a long list of images and containers which I have been using along with learning Docker.
I have saved many of them.
I used them over the weekend. I occasionally modify them and change them as Ii need to do so.
Yesterday , on Sunday afternoon I started up Docker as usual and gace the command
I got nothing! So I tried the other command
Docker ps -a
and again got nothing. What is going on. Everything is gone. I must have dozens of images and containers and now I have nothing.
I am not sure where they reside on my Laptop’s hard drive. I know that I must start of Docker to use see and use them.
But What the heck happened.
Where do the images and containers reside - on my hard drive?
In order for to do this I would have had to del each images and then each containers one by one. That would have taken hours.
In order to o and ensemble delete (which I rarely do) to do it twice once for images and once for containers.
I know that did not do that. They were just gone when I started up Docker yesterday. It seems I must have done something wrong.
I even tried looking through directories on my hard drive and there was nothing.
As I said I have backed up the critical ones, but I do not want this to happen again.
What did happen?
Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.
