Updated to 8.2, lost my reporting data
I updated to 8.2 beta 2 from 8.0.4 yesterday and was disappointed to see that my reporting data was lost in the process. The update appeared to execute properly and there were no other problems encountered, but all my existing history was gone....it was like the .rrd files had been created fresh
I have an existing ticket, #925, requesting some enhancements to the handling of the reporting data, so it might be worth taking a look at that ticket if you are investigating this one.
Overall I think the handling of this data needs to be much more robust.

Happend to me as well, albeit a while ago, when upgrading from 8.0 to 8.0.2 via GUI.
Back then I thought I skipped some important upgrade instructions, so saw no point in submitting a bug report for something what could just as well be my fault.
While I'm here, I also lose all reporting data every time [[FreeNAS]] stops responding and I have to shut down the box forcefully.
