Upgraded to RRF3 - which files are still necessary?



  • Hi there,
    after the upgrade, the system folder is full of files I think I don't need...? Is there a list of files you need / don't need? So I could delete them.
    And I have another question:
    There is a section "Display" in the folder files in my web-control... I always get the message that it is empty. I use a PanelDue... Do I need this? Or what do I have to do to get rid of it?
    Would be happy if someone could help me!

    greetings

    Most files installed during an upgrade using a "combined" zip file are not used for your particular board. You don't need to keep any of them BUT if you want you can select them all and download them as a ZIP file so you will always have access to them.

    There is a section "Display" in the folder files in my web-control...

    I have no idea what is is about.

    . I always get the message that it is empty.

    What is the actual error message?

    You didn't mention what Duet you have, so it's impossible to say which files you don't need exactly, but in general, if it's a firmware file for a duet board that you don't have you can probably delete it.



  • I have a Duet 2 Wifi board with a PanelDue connected to it.

    1. I added 2 screenshots of the messages get. On boot, there is the message that the file list could not be loaded? (do I need it? haven't seen this yet on the RRF 2.x) And also in the "Files" section on the left, there is the Section "Display"?
      Warning on boot:

    Screenshot of the "Display- sub-menu"

    1. I added a screenshot of all the files I found in the system menu... Am I right that I only need the following files:
    • bed.g
    • cancel.g
    • Clean_Nozzle.g
    • config.g
    • deployprobe.g
    • eventlog.txt
    • heightmap.csv
    • homeall.g
    • homex.g
    • homey.g
    • homez.g
    • pause.g
    • resetprobe.g
    • resume.g
    • resurrect.g
    • retractprobe.g
    • sleep.g
    • stop.g
    • tfree0.g
    • tpost0.g
    • tpre0.g

    All the other files could be erased, I think?

    The display tab is for the cheaper rotary encoder displays. Add a folder called menu to the root of your SD card and it will stop complaining.

    You should also keep
    config.json
    Duet2_SDiap32_WifiEth.bin
    Duet2CombinedFirmware.bin
    Duet2CombinedIAP.bin
    DuetWifiServer.bin
    DWC-settings.json
    dwc2settings.json
    iap4e.bin
    iap4s.bin
    panelduefirmware.bin

    You can delete iap4s.bin too, that's used by the Maestro only.
