    v31 v32  
    3535''Note that, as of v0.2.0b2, Tor Messenger contains a secure updater, and the following steps are no longer necessary moving forward.  However, if you're migrating from a previous release, they are still relevant.''

    37 1. The two files you want to look for are `otr.private_key` and `otr.fingerprints` (leave the `otr.instance_tags` file alone). They are located at:
    38 
    39  On Linux, `tor-messenger/Messenger/TorMessenger/Data/Browser/profile.default/`.
    40 
    41  On OS X, `Tor Messenger.app/Contents/TorMessenger/Data/Browser/[profile].default/`. If you're doing this in Finder, you'll need to open the context menu and choose Show Package Contents to access directories nested under the app.
    42 
    43  On Windows, `Tor Messenger\Messenger\TorMessenger\Data\Browser\profile.default/`.
    44 
    45 2. Move the aforementioned files (`otr.private_key` and `otr.fingerprints`) to a temporary location
     371. The two files you want to look for are `otr.private_key` and `otr.fingerprints` (leave the `otr.instance_tags` file alone). They are found in the profile directory. See the table below for the profile location for your version / platform.
     381. Move the aforementioned files (`otr.private_key` and `otr.fingerprints`) to a temporary location
    46391. Remove the main Tor Messenger directory (or the application on OS X)
    47401. Extract the latest beta
    48 1. Open the beta folder and copy the files you moved earlier to the same path (from step 1) corresponding to your platform
     411. Open the beta folder and copy the files you moved earlier to the path corresponding to your platform for the new version (again, consult the table below)

    5043Note that this only preserves your OTR keys, and authenticated fingerprints. You will still need to recreate your accounts with the account wizard.
