Don't talk nonsense, try it out. Workbench does not replace existing directories. That's what I didn't think of too at first. If you are copying from the Shell you can just do copy df0:#? dh0: all and all is fine. But not with Workbench, it complains about existing directories.

ENVARC is an assign pointing to Sys:Prefs/Env-Archive, which is on the Workbench disk but not on Extras. So if you delete the existing Prefs to be able to copy Extras, you delete ENVARC, too. If you don't delete but overwrite all is fine. You do not need to change anything in Startup-Sequence or elsewere.
