We are moving our DFM servers from 32bit windows to 64 bit Windows. I am going to follow this document - https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1222478/html/GUID-5ED41807-F8AE-408C-B127-91BD22EFECF7.html
The only question I have is on the below point. Should I copy each of the files in the exisitng directories to the new ones. I was of the opinion that the database backup and restore will do everything.
Point 6 -
Copy the data for each option to the new 64-bit install directory.
Copy the data from the installation_directory/data/ location to the new installation directory in Windows.

Looking at the instructions it would seem that the data in those particular directories is data that has been exported from the DB probably due to regular DB maintenance. So if needed, it would have to be copied over manually.

The backup file does not contain much of the data listed in the action plan, so if you want that specific data migrated then you need to copy it to the new location manually.

Some of the dir is already part of the database backup like 3,4,9
The contents of this doc is incorrect and needs correction.....
