There’s some sandboxing and stuff that may affect you depending on where your files are. I think it has access to sync stuff in your home directory. The config lives in a different place, there’s some directory structure in your home directory for snaps. You can simply transfer the files in the old config directory to the new place to retain your certificate, settings, and index. Potentially
~ in the UI (and config) will no longer refer to your home directory but some other snap-specific place, I’m not sure.
Try it out and see what happens.
