the installer of 3.4 rc2 has deleted my mounted
userdirectory (with the name netbeans in it) when
upgrading. My userdirectory was before the upgrade not in
mydocuments. After the upgrade the directory (with several
subdirectories) was deleted.
Please, could you provide more details? Which version of IDE did you
upgrade, where it was installed with what user dir ect?
Installer should remove old userdir after upgrade in case old userdir
is different than new userdir. Your files from old directory should be
in new userdir - under mydocuments\.netbeans\<version>
Fixed in main trunk. Installer will no remove user_dir at all.

Fixed also in release34.
The patch is OK. The only change is that the code deleting old user
dir has been removed, which is exactly what the fix should do.
There is problem with installer freeze during uninstalling the
previous version discovered by QA. Additional patch is needed to
disable possibility to do upgrade and to allow the user only to
install new version and to import settings.

It seems that I forgot to rtag installer with release341_base tag and
branch a release341.
Should I do that?
I did tagging & branching.
