Went to clean up recovery files and found psd not installed..?
Reinstalled, cleaned up recovery files, set options and verified with psd p, and then checked status with systemd, and got this result:
[root@KISE-005 ~]# systemctl status psd.service
Unit psd.service could not be found.
[root@KISE-005 ~]# pacman -Qii profile-sync-daemon

What is the output of `psd p`

systemctl --user --failed gives:
psd-resync.service loaded failed failed Timed resync

profile-sync-daemon[8825]: mv: cannot move '/home/myuser/.config/chromium' to '/home/myuser/.config/chromium-backup': Directory not empty

psd p

Profile-sync-daemon v6.28 on Arch Linux

Systemd service is currently active.
Systemd resync-timer is currently active.
Overlayfs v23 is currently active.

Psd will manage the following per /home/myuser/.config/psd/.psd.conf:

browser/psname: chromium/chromium
owner/group id: myuser/100
sync target: /home/myuser/.config/chromium
tmpfs dir: /run/user/1000/myuser-chromium
profile size: Infinity
overlayfs size: 0
recovery dirs: none

Tried disabling and enabling the psd.service and psd-resync.service but happens every time. psd p says everything is ok though. I also thought there where no psd-resync.service but only a psd-resync.timer.

I can see you changed to a psd-resync.service in the 6.28 commit though.
