Description Aron Griffis 2020-09-09 11:26:25 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a bunch of files in Keybase KBFS. This is a streaming FUSE filesystem that stores encrypted in the cloud. https://book.keybase.io/docs/files

I used toolbox enter, then cleaned up with toolbox reset. The reset operation took a long time... turns out it was because it was "cleaning up" all my files in Keybase.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
It happened yesterday, I'm not anxious to try again

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get set up with https://keybase.io/
2. Store some files in /keybase/ which is a redirector to your personal kbfs mount
    ✸ ls -l /keybase/
    private -> /run/user/10208/keybase/kbfs/private
    public -> /run/user/10208/keybase/kbfs/public
    team -> /run/user/10208/keybase/kbfs/team
3. Make a toolbox
4. toolbox reset

Actual results:
Cleaned out keybase

Expected results:
Cluttered keybase

Additional info:
You can recover keybase files, dir by dir, with commands such as
    keybase fs recover --reltime=1h /keybase/private/agriffis/\*

Are you saying that you lost the contents of /run/user/10208/keybase?

'toolbox reset' is nothing but a wrapper around 'podman system reset'. Unless you use Toolbox's --assumeyes or -y flag, it should prompt you before proceeding to deleting anything. Even if you choose to proceed, it's meant to only clean up Podman's state, not anything else.

I just tried 'podman system reset' on my machine with Podman 2.0.5, and as far as I can make out, it didn't delete anything that it shouldn't have.

So, if it touched /run/user/10208/keybase, then it would appear to be a Podman bug.

This does remind me of https://github.com/containers/podman/issues/4831 but I thought that it was fixed a while back.

What's the output of 'rpm -q podman'?

Anyway, reassigning, because this is just 'podman system reset'.

Comment 3 Aron Griffis 2020-09-09 17:04:33 UTC
Yeah, it does look like that bug


Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2020-09-11 20:21:38 UTC
So you are saying that `podman system reset` is removing content from  /run/user/10208/keybase?

Comment 5 Aron Griffis 2020-09-15 12:07:37 UTC
Yes, that's what I'm saying. Though I haven't tried it again since the first time it cleaned out my keybase filesystem.

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2020-09-15 20:32:34 UTC
Qi could you verify this?

Comment 7 Qi Wang 2020-10-05 14:10:37 UTC
I failed to regenerate this issue. I was using Version:2.0.6.
