My syncthing device id changed, folders lost

Well i re ran syncthing and now i get a new device id and my folders are gone. How do i get my old id/account back? Why is it if you run syncthing again you get a new id?

my pc may of recieved a new local ip, its dynamic, could that be why?

Check -help to see where syncthing creates its configs and certificates which define the device id. You potentially ran it with the -home option which changes the path where it keeps these, causing syncthing to generate new ones.

i restarted my computer and ran syncthing again, this got my device id back.

You probably ran it as a different user or something.
