Is there any way not to lose bandwidth stats when upgrading?

    Kind of want to keep track of what I upload and download this year - didn't think I was going to lose January data while upgrading to 1.04

    you can save bandwidth stats to an external destination using the CIFS-clients under administration/cifs client to access a windows or samba network share. this share will however have to be up and accessable whenever your box wants to save it. bandwidth stats can be saved there by going to administration/bandwidth monitoring and setting the save location to a cifs share. you can also manually backup your stats there and roll them back every time you upgrade, but if you have a computer running most of the time anyways, using a cifs share is a good idea.

    You probably selected the wrong options ... you might have mistakenly selected the option to start a new file. If you've lost your bandwidth history than it's might be due to the above. Once you get it setup you can start saving the info.

    Most of us are now using CIFS - client to store the bandwidth info on our harddrives, so upgrading doesn't impact any previously saved information.

    Jon has a Bandwidth flash tutorial on his site that show you what the accumulated info looks like after a couple months of saving.

    Good luck ...

    Edit: if bandwidth stopped recording you might have to reboot router/computer.
