Why do ambiences which have sounds on the SD Card lose their settings periodically?

Just as the question says, I have a huge music collection on a 64GB SDXC card (formatted plain FAT), and every so often, I have to re-set the ring-tones on some of my custom ambiences, because it spontaneously changes them back to the Jolla ring tone.

Hi, did you notice if this happens when you remove the sd card from your Jolla? I think that if a ressource pointed to by an ambience disappears, the related setting is reset. If the picture disappears, ambience is deleted.

I have not removed the card, ever.

Does this happen when you reboot the phone? If so, I think it may have to do with the boot sequence, i.e. ambiences get scanned before the SD card has been mounted.

Yes, this happens when I reboot the phone. And if this is the case, can we please find a clean way to push ring tones onto the device itself? This is aggravating in the highest.

@TSCHAK As a workaround you can copy your ambience images an ringtones to the phone with an app called Cargo Dock.

Yeah that would be a workaround. Used it myself. Still a bug though.
