Sonar default folder locations changed with recent update

I discovered today that my Sonar default location paths in preferences have been overwritten from the custom paths I had set up for my secondary data HDD with:
 
'C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Cakewalk\SONAR Platinum'
 
I had noticed that my default template has been missing since the 2017.09 Platinum update, but really started the hunt today after updating to 2017.10 and it was still missing.  Considered rolling back, but found the solution was to manually restore my default paths.
 
My big clue to check the default folder locations again was when I installed some Big Fish loops today, and noticed them being installed somewhere on my C: drive.  I know I had been using the path 'D:\Cakewalk Content\' for a long time, and in fact still had this setting in CCC (which was obviously being ignored for this install).

    Did you by chance log out of the CCC?  I have seen the user edited defaults reset when this happens.

    Don't think so, because the CCC content path settings that I had set were still in place in CCC as 'D:\Cakewalk Content'.
     
    It's the Sonar path preferences settings that were reset, and not by me.  Haven't touched that in a long time!

    I have just checked in SONAR and the CCC and can see no unexpected differences to file locations or paths.

    Sorry

    Thanks, but still wondering how/why MOST of my default paths were replaced somehow in Sonar 'Preferences > Folder Locations'.  All paths except for 'Project Files' and 'Video Files' got switched.
     
    The first paths that jumped out at me as broken were 'Templates' and 'Wave Files', because now instead of pointing to my usual paths 'C:\Cakewalk Projects' (projects and templates here) and 'D:\Cakewalk Content' (sample & loop content here), they were now pointing to 'C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Cakewalk\SONAR Platinum', and coming up blank.
     
    So I was surprised when I noticed such a global change to something that never changed before.
     
    I am not making this up.  It happened, and I clearly did not do it.  Something changed this, and that is not good.
