I have been waiting for the next LMCE release for a while now and just saw that the beta 3 came out. Can I update from the previouse version to the newest without loosing data? I have not turned my LMCE core on for some time now due to the myth tv issues I was having. I just want to know if I can update without spending a great deal of time and without loosing my meida.
If you download Beta3 and install it over your LinuxMCE-704 installation your old installation will be detected and any MD's or other standard devices plus you media in /home/public/data will be preserved... or at least it should be. Remember this is still a beta release and there are still issues and bugs in it... and there maybe bugs/issue in upgrading like I describe above.
So make sure
you have a backup before you do the above
