All saved setting erased after updating to 2022.20.6

I just updated from 2022.16.2 to 2022.20.6 and all my previous settings have been wiped. Almost like a factory reset. The only thing saved were the key cards and my phone key. Every setting and login had to be redone. It was even showing - - - as mi odometer mileage for about 5 minutes. It even told me “introducing software v11.0”!

I haven’t driven it yet but it sill thinks it’s at Tesla HQ in Palo Alto. I hope all the FSD comes back after a drive too, every selection is currently greyed out.

*I don't know how to edit my awesome grammar and spelling in the title

similar thing happened to me after 2022.24.6.5. Settings erased, including my home address, which meant my sentry mode got turned on for a few days and drained like 150 miles of battery. Also, my tesla app now shows a 6 digit number instead of my car name.
Reset your car name. The number you see is the last 6 digits of your VIN, which is used when the car name isn’t set.
Me too on "upgrading" to .40.4.1. Ugh, should have known better than to "upgrade" (and now have stupid auto-high-beam to deal with on AutoPilot). I'm annoyed that my lifetime energy stats were wiped, can't re-configure that. Also the car's frequently (not always) complaining about my USB drive (sentry / dashcam) since the update, but unplug and plug and it works fine.

Wish we had a way to revert like in the olden days of computers. Remember when you could just copy your System Folder to another drive as a backup?
