After new firmware my crontab jobs are gone

After upgrading to RUTX_R_00.07.05.3 my crontab jobs are gone as well as other scripts and data I had (sloppy me) in the root subdir. Have they been moved elsewhere by the upgrade process?


By default, crontabs do not survive a firmware update.
Any files that have been created/edited via the CLI/SSH need to be added to sysupgrade.conf file, as by default only the configuration files found in /etc/config are preserved during an update.
It is advisable to create a backup file every time before running an update to avoid issues like this.

Best regards,
