How do you properly update rclone?

i downloaded the zip version and want to know how i can update the rclone i have? should i create another rclone folder with the new version? if so what config or settings do i need to transfer to the new rclone?

I just copy the new files into the same folder, that is I overwrite the old files. It will use the same config and settings, they are stored in a separate file.

Make sure to stop any mounts and rclone commands before the copy.

You can verify the update by executing: rclone version
and check your configuration with rclone config show

With recent versions, just run rclone selfupdate, probably as Administrator.
For older versions see comnent above.
