Shifting from D7 to GV

Hey all,

Let’s say I get a D7, and a year or two later realize that I can’t comply with the stay requirement, and say at that point I decide to buy property in Portugal and shift to a Golden Visa, does the clock (to PR and citizenship) reset or do I get to carry forward the time already invested via the D7?

Thanks in advance! I know this is a tough/tricky one.

Cheers,
M
