Hi all,

Whilst checking TRS 10 yesterday I found from the forum (Zec's comments) on updating to a newer service pack, currently I have been using 49933 and there was a beta update to 449938, if I had the update selected (mine was not ticked) so I followed Zec's suggestion of backing up Local and original folders to a spare disk in case of having to re install.

Should I take the gamble of updating the beta? as I have all VR quids I can get and building a route "Windermere to Ararat" and don't want to have to start again after 6 months work. So should I some how make a CDP of my route so that I don't loose it at all for good and could be installed at a later date.

While I have been playing with Trainz for quite a few years now I have not had problems with service packs in the past, so because I have so much at stake to possibly loose I thought I would ask this forum for advice.

Dan,

I have asked the same question when updating build numbers. Safe thing to do is backup your 'Local' folder so if something DOES go wrong with the patch, at least your content is stored somewhere for reintegration. However I have never found that to be an issue (save for TS2009 SP2 which was a failure) If you then have to revert to a previous version which would require re installing the game, again you have a backup to restore your stuff. I would ensure that it is backed up to a portable device like an external hard drive. At last count my Local folder was some 30GB in size! :P

Cheers
Tim :ugeek:

It's nice to see your local folders are a reasonable size. Mine are 110gb or so, after extensive clearing
