In recent versions of Kodi, there has been some unexplained corruption of addon settings. If Kodi crashes or experiences some internal problem, the settings of the currently opened addon can become corrupt. On relaunching the addon, the settings file is reset and all your accounts and preferences are gone.
There is a tool to automatically backup your settings: Gaia → Settings → General
. On every launch of the addon, a copy of your current settings is saved. In case Gaia’s settings are unexpectedly reset, you can restore them from a previous backup.
There are also other backup tools, allowing you to manually backup your local databases, caches, and settings: Gaia → Tools → Backup
