This is NOT how a pre-existing version of the boardware gets upgraded. Kids, do not try this at home. Your FTP client should have settings that allow the overwriting of the necessary files and preservation of the existing directory structure. Deleting things in this manner could cost you any customized images, special modifications, and a whole lot of other shizzle.

Please follow the instructions provided with upgrade patches and releases by IPS. They've given me headaches, even messed up a hack or two, but have never necessitated the wiping of my FTP site.
