been updated to protect more resources ????? [Resolved] and now lists “…been updated to protect more resources” as an improvement. I have many rules that got wiped out the last time I “updated” CFP to, and I had to recreate them all.

Someone else asked something like this but I couldn’t find an answer.

Is this going to happen again if I update? Should I be writing down every rule I make? Does “Exporting” buy me anything?

Right now, I’ve stopped “updating” because I don’t need the hassle of re-fixing something that’s working.



Updating shouldn’t affect your current rules, it should only add new items (like registry keys, COM interfaces). Well, if you do a clean install (delete old version, and install the newer one), you’ll loose everything, if you don’t export it.
Using the export-function will save your current configurations for Defense+ and the firewall.


…it should only add new items …

Good. I’ll give it a shot. I guess if worse came to worst, and I had to import my old configuration, I could do so. That would blow away the “new COMODO” default rules though - Right?

If I’m not wrong, importing your old rules will remove (really it won’t remove, but replace) all the current rules (which includes all new ones too).


Got ya. It’ll be a little while before I have the time to deal with potential miscalculations though. I’ll try to let you know how it goes.

Thanks again.

Seems to have kept my old rules. :slight_smile: Can’t be sure about their new ones since they don’t say what they are.

Thanks again,

Yeah. they don’t specify what’s added in the new update, but it’s not too much to worry about, but it’s always interesting to know.
Anyways, is it okay if I go on and mark this topic as resolved, or do you have some more questions regarding this issue?


Seems cool. At least nothing screwed-up yet. :slight_smile:

Okay, I’ll close the topic now. If you should encounter further problems related to this issue, just PM an online moderator with a link to this topic, so that he can open it for you.
