User lost followers after upgrading to 4.5

I assume it has to do with a question asked during the upgrade. Followers and followed content takes a lot of db space, so the question was whether you want to prune some of the data based on IPS defaults or you want to set the settings yourself. I assume you clicked through to do it the IPS way.

If it is any consolation, the removed followers were probably inactive for very long on your board.

A lot of our content/members lost followers too, but they were guest accounts that stayed behind after the member account that was actually following was deleted, something the system should have automatically removed, but never did.  4.5 finally fixed this issue which has existed since 4.2.  This could be an explanation for you, however, if it only effected one member, then it's probably just a coincidence that the followers were considered inactive and removed automatically by the system, as jair101 pointed out.
