Description of my issue:

Hi, on updating a few sites to the latest Akeeba Backup Pro for Joomla 8.0.5 I have noticed that it is resetting the backup config.

On going to Components > Akeeba Backup it is prompting to follow the config wizard, and all of the config settings are being wiped (I have all sites uploading the backup to OneDrive and have had to re-add this back in).

I've found this on 5 sites today so don't think it's anything I'm doing.

Thank you for the heads up. We are currently releasing a new version to address this. As long as you did not run the Configuration Wizard or saved anything in the Configuration page installing the new version will automatically address this issue. If you have taken either of these actions you will need to reconfigure your backup profile.
