    Oh ok good to know about the presets in a newer fw possibly being blanks in older fw.

    So do you run into any issue with current settings you’ve created going to new fw and them not working right after

    No... It's mostly a matter of something in the new FW that might adversely affect the presets I've created. Typically this would be some sort of change to the modeling algorithms or some bug that affects me.

    On the Axe Fx II, I don't recall reverting FW more than once or twice from 2013-2019.

    Usually, it's recommended to not update right before a gig...

    In cases where there is a significant change to your sound, you can choose to revert or update your presets. For some, updating can be a real chore.

    Everyone if different ;)

    Each backup contains the date and time it was made, and that information is put into the filename. That means each backup will have a different filename, so they will never write over each other. :)

    Thanks really appreciate you all for taking the time and helping me out with fw undate information. I think I will add fw number to the file description along with the saved date.
