#Shareobjects deleting itself

Apr 14, 2012 6:25 PM

Tags: #problem #help #issue #update #firefox #flash_player_11

Windows Vista 64bit

Firefox 11

Flash Player is up to date - 11.2.202.228

 

The file #sharedobjects keeps emptying itself causing all saved data in game and such to be wiped. I'm not sure on what time frame it auto-deletes but this happened after the latest flash player update.

    Do you have anything running that could be cleaning your browser's cache?  Do you have the Firefox extension BetterPrivacy installed?

    Do you run any cleaning tools such as CCleaner?  If so, you may want to turn off Flash Player cleaning.

    Sorry, I have no more ideas; hopefully someone from the Flash Player team can come up with additional ideas.

     

    All I can say is that Flash Player does not do that by itself, so it must be something else.  Norton/Symantec of course are always suspects.

    First, just for sanity sake, you aren't using private browsing are you?

     

    If not, the next thing I'd try is to see what is writing and deleting files from your #SharedObjects folder.  Grab Process Monitor and start it up.  Create a new filter with:

     

    "Path", "begins with", "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects", "include"

    From here you might be able to see what process is deleting the file.  You can also add another filter with "detail" "contains" "delete" "include".

     

    Finally, if you haven't already you might want to consider resetting your Firefox profile.

     

    Make a new profile

    Can you see any activity?  You should see who/what does any activity in there.

    I'd look for the word "delete" in the detail column.  Hopefully you see when one of these files/folders are being deleted and you can see what process is responsible.

    I believe this started in 10.3.
