My PC seems to be a bit sick right now so I am going to rebuild it with a fresh W7 install. I am currently running MP2.2 pre-release (it seems stable, so apart from some minor issues I decided to stay with it). I'd like to keep my settings and media database.

If I copy al the data in C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal to a new drive, and then re-install MP2, will this preserve everything I need? Also, should I re-install 2.2 pre-release and then upgrade to the latest version, or can I just go straight to 2.21?

    Yes, provided the data can then be found at the same location in your new Windows setup.

    can I just go straight to 2.21?
    You can immediately install MP 2.2.1 without having to install 2.2pre or 2.2 first.
