I have been running Influxdb 2.0 on my synology nas for a month. Yesterday, I setup Watchtower so that my containers are always up to date. Watchtower has now updated the influxdb container and when I want to access the gui, I have to setup a new account etc. I think all my data (2 Buckets) are gone.
Is my assumption correct or is there a way to restore it?

- My Influxdb Log:

No, I meant a logfile from Watchtower regarding the update it performed.
- No, is there a way to create backups via the GUI?
a) I can’t answer that; I don’t personally use the GUI
b) what I was getting at was “do you have a backup from before whatever got
updated, so you can go back to a working system?”
Watchtower is a Docker image that automatically updates other Docker images/containers. However, I would never run this automatically, but only be informed about new image versions. You can configure Watchtower to only inform, but not automatically update.
Otherwise something like here happens…
The question is how you started the InfluxDBv2 container initially? With persistent volumes?
I just used the Docker app in Synology to setup the container.
My Watchtower log concerning influxdb:

I have setup the following link:
However, the docker/influxdb folder on my synology is now empty.
