Default [Q] Lost root access?

I've been rooted and running Sacs ROM for a while now, but somehow I've lost root access. When I try Supersu it tells me "There is not SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it..."

I have been trying different ROMS and restored from a nandroid backup using TWRP. What do I need to do to get back root access?

Yes, I can, but I wasn't sure if that was advisable or not given that I had root access before and somehow lost it. In any event, I re-rooted using CF auto root and all is well. What I don't understand is how I lost root access in the first place.

No telling why you lost it. Did you take an update?

I know I updated to NC6, lost root, but re-rooting was not an issue.
