Computer rebuild

So I rebuilt my computer today, had to do fresh reinstall of Windows etc.

Put Chia back on and whilst it is showing my 4 hard drives with the plots on (under add plot directory) but it is also listing them as ‘plots not found’ ?!

Is this a bug in the software?

Any ideas how to fix it as I’m not starting from scratch re. plotting.


Maybe a bug in the GUI? you can check the config.yaml file to see if the folder paths are actually set correctly

Does the account you are running under have permission to the plot directories and the plots? A “fresh” user account, even with the same name and password, is still a different account than the one from the old install.

Well I’ve granted ‘Everyone’ full permission to access the files.

The GUI shows me this:-


The config.yaml file shows this:-


  • G:\
  • E:\
  • F:\
  • I:\

And you are using the same key as the one those plots were plotted under?

Did a cold shutdown and restart of the PC and it now sees all the plots!

Thanks for your thoughts.

Going to keep the farm going for a few more weeks before I decide whether to carry-on or cut my losses and flog the hardware.
