    Anyone done this?  Anything I should be aware of?

    I'd rather learn from your mistakes than have to make my own!  Smiley

    Same as upgrading CTPs, uninstall it all; install the release code, then reattach the databases and sort out the orphaned users.

    As fate would have it, I'm making plenty of my own mistakes.  I think I've made the worst possible combination of choices/assumptions possible.  It turns out that if you specify two backup locations, it actually puts half the data in one file and half the data in the other. 

    Should I have read more of the docs before doing this?  Yes.  However, using the GUI to create a backup and then restore the backup should have been MUCH easier.  And the terminology in the GUI should have better indicated what was going on.

    Thank goodness for Google's cache.
