Default Preferences constantly resetting?

Morning everyone, as of late (within the last few months), i've had a continued issue where my Pro Tools after launch behaves as if all of my preferences have been trashed.

I will have to redo all my settings for session backups, metering, plugin preferences, viewing options, and more. It's basically starting from scratch. Last night it went so far as I had to redo my preferences within the Transport and Timeline options.

Any idea as to why this would be happening? I haven't updated my system since 2019.5 and i've not done any OS updates (10.13.6 High Sierra)

Any help here would be appreciated.

Default Re: Preferences constantly resetting?

Check the permissions for your system drive. Your system drive - spinner or ssd? How did you go from OSX 10.12.6 to OSX 10.13.6?

Also reset your pram/nvram (make Google your friend).
