You don’t need to reinstall any content, just upgrade DAZ Studio to the latest version, and leave your content where it is.  All of your previous content will work, and remain where it is.

You will need to install:
“Genesis Starter Essentials”
“Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials”
“Genesis 2 Male Starter Essentials”
“Default Lights and Shaders for DAZ Studio”

All other content will be left as is, whether purchased or created by you.

My Base DAZ Studio content folder now goes all the way back to DS2. It has been moved, renamed and added to very much from the DAZ Studio 2 days until now. All my content loads and works. When upgrading DAZ Studio only the Program changes. It does not change your content in anyway. I also still have DS2 folder a DS3 folder all plain too.

As long as your content is installed properly, as in not in the Programs Folders any more, and you configure the Paths in DAZ Studio properly your content will out last your Hard Drive. Mine has twice now. (Bad Drives but I have back ups.)

Just for general info:
Its possible to have to have both DAZ3d Studio 4.0 and 4.6 installed on the same machine; I have had both installed together on the same machine and encountered no problems with doing so.  As well the new 4.6 version uses a newer type of database different from the ones used in older versions of daz3d.

Not on the same partition unless one of the two versions is a Beta version. The default is for DAZ Studio to replace the older version. And two versions will most times share the configuration files even if one is a beta and the other is not.
I’m not saying it is not possible to do, it is just not standard default installs to have two full versions on a PC is all.

Your correct in that if you were using the installer it would be a bit trickier to have more then one on the same partition but using Dim you can download and then place the daz3d program version manually into the DAZ3D folder within the C drive Program folder without any issues (At least I have never encountered any) as long as each are named differently from each other. An example would be DAZ3D 4.6 and DAZ3D 4.0 folders.

At one point I had 4.0, 4.5 and two different versions of 4.6 and none were beta and all ran just fine; you just have to be comfortable doing things manually. The only reason I removed the different versions is that I really like the latest one and I was running out of space on my hard-drive.

Yes that would work, I’ll add this to my Tips and Tricks collection for keeping.
