Proxmox VM not saving

I'm new to proxmox and the forums so if i'm missing any information please let me know. I'm having a weird issue with one of my win10 vms. I've noticed a couple weeks ago that changes made in the vm are not being kept. I think I have narrowed down to after I restart win10 or if win10 is restarting without my knowledge. For example, folders made (locally) are not there anymore. The vm is just a seedbox so it runs qbittorrent and a vpn and rarely gets restarted. If I check back after a couple days configs made in qbt are not there anymore and folders are no longer there. I have not checked this on any of my other vms because I have not made any changes to them in months and don't want to restart any.

I realize I have no specifics or specs listed but i'm just hoping I could get some possible causes of this to research since my google searches up to this point have not helped. If you need anything from me I would be happy to provide.
