Q: How to upgrade from an old version without loosing my stored data ?  

 

A: In order to upgrade an old StudioFiles version, you have to select the existing StudioFiles folder as the target for the StudioFiles 3 installation. This selection should happen automatically by the installation setup. However, if this doesn't happen you should set this target folder manually. When you install StudioFiles 3 over an existing version it converts the old database files into a new format and importing all the stored data in it into the new database.

If you install StudioFiles 3 for evaluation purposes, it is best to select different target folder and keep the installed version and its database files as is.
