I forgot how to update the emulator. It's been a long time since I have. Do I just copy every from the new build to the folder with the old build? I noticed that the new build has a dev_hdd0 as well so if I were to hit yes to overwriting wouldn't I lose data?
My specs:
CPU: Intel i5-8400 2.8 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo)
Motherboard: GIGABYTE B360M D3H
RAM: Ripjaws V Series, 2x8 GB DDR4 (2666 MHz)
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 (6 GB)
Power supply: EVGA SuperNOVA G3 550 W
OS: Windows 10 Pro (64 bit)

rpcs3 always had dev_hdd0,that's where your games are(unless you modify the dev_hdd0 path from the settings)
The archive you don't don't contain anything settings related so you can just extract the archive into your rpcs3 folder,you will not lose any data

What I do when I update is downloading the archive,open it,select all of the files and only the qt folder and drag drop them to the rpcs3 folder and overwrite all.
I usually rename the old rpcs3 exe just in case this new build contains a bug that break some of my games so I know to what rev to return to while waiting for a fix

I have never lost any data while updating rpcs3 almost every week since I started using it,more than a year ago
