Upgrades and personal files

For those who have Haiku installed on their hard drives…

How often do you upgrade to the latest nightly build? Do you save your settings? Or, do you reinitialize the partition and start with a clean installation?

What do you do to save your personal files? Do you use a separate BFS partition? Do you back up your files? Do you just keep them on your primary BFS partition and only upgrade the operating system files?

I’ve had Haiku installed on my hard drive for a while, but it’s only been the past couple of weeks that I’ve been using it for a lot of personal work. Now I have a lot of personal files on my BFS partition. Most of it’s backed up online, but I’d like to find an easier solution for the future. I was wondering what other Haiku users do about upgrades and personal files.

Haiku progresses way too quickly to stay with the same nightly build for a long time. :stuck_out_tongue:

I just copy the home folder over. Then I wipe the drive and start over. About every 2-3 weeks.

I actually, when downloading a nightly release, will have the hdd partitioned, so that I can re-initialize one for upgrading/reinstallation, and keep the storage partition with my stuff in it intact.
