Update ClassicWB - Without format?

I have over 2000 WHDLOAD games installed, however I'm using ClassicWB Lite previous to my ACA 128/25MHZ install. How do I go about installing to ADVSP without formatting and wiping the games?

Option 1:
---------
Are the games in the SYS partition?
If you have another partition like Work: for example you can just go to the Assign-Startup and change the "Assign >NIL: A-Games: SYS:Games" for example to "Assign >NIL: A-Games: Work:Games" and then move all the games to that partition.

That way you'll have the Demos/Games in another partition and you can format/update and do whatever you want on the SYS partition without loosing anything.

Option 2:
---------
You can make an installation of ClassicWB AdvSp in WinUAE and then delete the games folder from it.
Then you can transfer it on your A1200 installation by overwriting any files or better delete everyting but the games folder and copy the installation to your SYS partition.

If all the games are on a 2nd partition, you can just wipe the classicwb partition and copy the other version over in WinUAE.
