Upgrading Ionic Storage


I’ve migrated an old Ionic 3 project to Ionic 6 (Angular) recently and once I’d tackled all the jobs that required all is now working. Except. I have a strange issue with ‘storage’. This is the key-pair storage that was provided by @ionic/storage and is now provided by @ionic/angular-storage.

Despite naming my storage identically, if I update my app on a device from the Ionic 3 version to the Ionic 6 version it loses all the storage settings (this is where I kept non-essential but useful ‘configuration’ data such as users’ personal settings etc.). It’s by no means the end of the world, but surely there must be a way for the ‘new’ storage to be able to access the ‘old’?

Has anyone managed this, or even had the same issue?
