Don't Delete Addon Data Silently When Disabling

dahamsta shared this idea 4 years ago
Under Consideration

Much to my consternation, I recently discovered that Addon data is deleted silently when an addon is disabled, no prompt, nothing. A prompt should be introduced or a backup taken. I consider this a bug, the second I've found this week, but I've been referred here on both occasions. Why there's a bug reporting facility at all is beyond me.

I can imagine the reason for this behaviour is... if you disable an addon you may delete it in total and the addon table would fill with useless data if not deleted. So deleteing this data is a kind of "cleanup".

That's why a prompt should be introduced or a backup taken.
