UPDATING LMMS

Anything that doesn't fit into other topics goes here!
So I have an older version and I want to get the updated version but im scared if I do that then all my saved projects and samples will be lost is that true? Ive added some folders as well and I heard that you hvae to delete the old version to download the new one. Someone please help??
Are you on Windows or Linux ?

For both operating systems, it basically the same though,

You back up everything, so you can't loose anything.

One way is to copy the entire lmms folder to a different folder and you should be fine.

Call that folder back up lmms, or something like that.
Make sure you copied everything.

Gps is right, however 'everything' means everything YOU made! -eg Your own stuff
Lmms comes with our factory files, and then users add their own files, default in the Projects library.
So 'everything' would be your Projects library, and all the presets you have made there
However, if you have made a different library-structure, or even saved your own presets in the factory folders, then you need to backup those too.
That said.. I have updated lmms 101+ times -I have yet to see a failed update!

Besides that, since you are new in Forum

I forgot that for several times but then I used to this rather quickly.
