Lost all Brave Rewards after updating laptop

Hello.

Briefly describe your issue:
Last night I updated my MacBook Air and lost all my Brave Rewards.
My connected Ledger wallet extension and data was also deleted.
Frequently visited tabs (favourites) for webpages and all my history was also gone.
It was as if it was a brand new Brave.
The only thing that was not wiped were my saved bookmarks. Thankfully!

What Operating System and Brave version are you using (Menu --> About Brave)?
MacOS Catalina version 10.15.7
Brave version 1.31.91

Is your browser wallet currently verified? (yes/no)
My wallet was not verified because I took the advise from Brave which stated: “The funds in your Brave wallet are virtual and not required to backup”.
My own fault.

What date did you verify your wallet?
N/A

Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past?
I’ve never had a problem before and have received regular payments.
I also auto-contributed regularly.
