I thought use the Install AROS Icon, and uncheck the format partition option, is this correct, to update the existing Aros One v2.1 without losing any data?

In principle, yes.

But realize that it depends on what you meant with "without losing any data".

Old existing files, icons, preference settings etc /might/ be overwritten by the new installation. In fact you would expect that to happen so that for example program x version 1.1 is overwritten by the new installation by program x version 2.0.

If it is regarding your own created files, then as long as they are not located in(side) any of the standard system directories you should be good to go.

Any personal customizations made to the system /might/ get lost.

It is exactly the same for any other OS upgrade/re-installation.

If you do not trust it, make a backup of/for all your important files that you want to keep safe before making any attempt to upgrade.

edit: pay close attention to the post below from AMIGASYSTEM (if even to circumvent remnants of a previous installation).

AROS One v2.2 is not an update, AROS One 2.2 includes many changes, many configurations have been corrected and changed, even on the icons. also some applications and folders have been moved, so if you update you will get duplicate folders and duplicate applications (old and new).

My advice is to make a backup of your data, format the hard disk "from Wanderer", reboot with the AROS One v2.2 DVD/Pendrive and do a fresh installation, from InstallAROS choose "Use existing AROS partition".

If you have a different version of the icons in your system, in the folder "SYS:SystemAROS One" there are all the AROS One icon packages (2 types Install Icons Apps, 5 types Icons Disk, 4 types Icons Drawer), they are packages of hundreds of icons that you can install in a few seconds with one click, all the respective icons in your system will be replaced.

User James Mattson, has created a nice Video Tutorial on AROs One 2.2, showing some applications and new features of AROS One 2.2

Thank you for the advice, I think I will employ the same process as updating a Linux distribution, by saving the user configuration files to a backup drive. Update the system and restore the personal settings.

This works unless the settings format changes,

Installed Fract on AROS One, Fract Fract is a free, SDL based 3d rendering benchmark.Open-source PC Benchmark based on realtime software
rendering. It is designed to provide 100% unbiased results that really correspond to the raw performance of your CPU and system bus.

I have changed the Default tool for OpenURL, it is now set to AmiFox, OWB when used as a tool by OpenURL returns a GURU, the GURU is motivated by the fact that OWB requires a high Stack (20000) to run, this stack cannot be configured on OpenURL.

AmiFox is not a true browser, as well as working well with OpenURL, it allows access to sites no longer supported by OWB.

Made a small change on AROS One, now SMB2-GUI will not only generate the DOSDrivers (SMB2), it will also be possible to Mount the share on Windows or other OS.

The DOSDrivers generated with SMB2-GUI will be saved by the programme in Storage/DOSDrivers, and that for later mounting will have to be done via a script or a link to its Icon, perhaps conveniently from Amistart or BoingIconBar.

I would like to remind you not to run SMB2 from Devs/DOSDrivers, from WBStratup or from User-Startup, otherwise the mount will fail, this is because SMB2 must be run after Wanderer has been started.

I would also like to remind you that on AROS One there are two condamental tools for this service in the ExtrasInternetSMB2 path:

- SMB2-Restart = serves to ReMount SMB2, when Windows deactivates "by default" after about 15 minutes "network shares"-.

- SMB2-DisMount = This tool serves to DisMount SMB2

From the next version of AROS One, Dopus4 will use XAD library to handle most archives, all known Archive formats are supported such as LHA, LZX, ZIP, 7z, TAR.BZ2, TAR, TAR.GZ, TAR.Z, ZOO, RAR Archives version 4 and 5 will be unpacked from UnRAR as before.

I enclose a small easustive video where you can see how Dopus4 with a "Double Click" can examine the content of the Archives and with "M Click" unzip the archive to the predefined path on the second window of Dopu4

In AROS One v2.3 there will be some new features, three new folders "Benchmarks", "DemoEffects" and "DemoScene" that will include software that I found on Archives, Aminet and some Developer sites.

In "DemoEffects" you will find 40 good quality demos from the Italian developer "Calogiuri Enzo Antonio", see screnshot !

Having completed all Datatypes Descriptors, AROS One now recognises TIF, WEBP and PPM images.

All Image File Types in the Icon Tooltype have the tool "LoView", excluding TIF images because TIFF Datatypes do not yet exist on AROS.

For TIFF images I have used the tool "VindentiumPicta" in the tooltype, but the image must be dragged to the "VindentiumPicta" window because this programme cannot be associated, hopefully "Juan Carlos" will add this function to his programmes.

Should AROSWorld continue with AROS-Exec files (SMF based)?
