Looks like you are now lying in public... (using your own conversation style
Nothing gets deleted by the migration so there can't be data loss. If the
migration was actually triggered all files from DOT_GNUCASH_DIR have been
*copied* to either GNC_DATA_HOME or GNC_CONFIG_HOME. You can look up the exact
locations per platform on https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/
Configuration_Locations. The original files are still in DOT_GNUCASH_DIR.
