Bug report #14731
Project file data loss
|Affected QGIS version:||2.14.0||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||not reproducable|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Yes||Copied to github as #:||22689|
When opening a .qgs file used yesterday, I noticed that the project had lost almost all of the data, such as linked SHP-files. I have lost a few hours of work due to this and this is a bit worrying for further work. It is this first time I observe this and I am the only one working with the project file.
QGIS 2.14.0, 64 bit
Windows 7, 64 bit

I wish I could provide steps to reproduce, but I think that will be hard. Yesterday, I experimented a bit with different parts of QGIS, such as creating a new virtual layer, Processing-Intersection, GroupStats and so on. I have not used these tools much before yesterday, not sure if one of these was the cause of the data loss.

This might be related to virtual layers, since at least one more user reported this problem in a project using virtual layers, https://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-user/2016-April/036146.html.
