I have no idea why but I for some reason the settings I apply to specific folders have been getting reset at seemingly random times.
By folder settings I mean sorting options mostly. I have to frequently re-select my pictures folder to have the option to sort by 'date created' and then select it. It keeps defaulting back to sorting by name. almost all folders have the same problem! it also keeps defaulting back to the "details" option for all folders when they were originally "thumbnails"
