Pi Rebooting into old state ??

Thu Jun 22, 2017 7:30 am

Hi all,

I just updated my pi.

Linux pigts 4.9.33-v7+ #1010 SMP Sat Jun 17 17:13:15 BST 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux

Every time I reboot, all of my files revert back to before I updated it...its odd and I have no idea what's going on. Could the write permissions have changed on my SD card? Anyone have any ideas on what I can do?

Thanks!

Its odd that writes are made (i can initiate through the www-data user, and they are stored until reboot)

The pi user can modify files it does not own, again, until reboot.

Your SD card has failed and gone into read-only mode. Changes are buffered, but the writes to the card don't happen. This is the card's way of preserving your existing data.

Get a new card and copy your system across using a USB card adapter and the SD card copier application in Raspbian, or install on a new card from scratch.
