.data folder deleted on refresh

I had a .data folder so I could store files such as users, because the help page says you can use .data folders for sensitive files

In addition to using .env, you should create a folder called .data to safely store your data files. This folder isn’t copied across when a project is remixed.

Every refresh deletes the folder, even though it doesn’t say that it deletes the folder on refresh.

I don’t know what exactly is going on, can you help me please?

Edit: Lol I can’t speak today

hi, can you open your terminal in your project and run:

ls -a

glad it helped!

the docs say that the folder is hidden from public view to prevent your database (and data) being stolen. Just do cd .data to access the folder!
