18.104.22.1688 and now 22.214.171.1240 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 126.96.36.1999, 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.
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?
