Please describe the problem.

I ran git-annex unused on a few annexes and they dropped files that were still being used. The annexes were fully synced and git-annex list showed the files in the annex they were dropped from.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

I'm not sure. The files lost appear to be more recently added files, so this bug must be in more recent versions. I will edit and fill this out when I know more.

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

7.20191230-gef6d1e327 on Pop! OS 20.04 (Ubuntu based)

Please provide any additional information below.

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

I've used git-annex to maintain large file sets for years now and there is no better tool I know of.

Closing as requested information has not been provided. If you followup we can reopen it. done --Joey
