1DX new firmware question...

I am about to load the new firmware in my 1DX.

Question: Does loading the new firmware remove any of the menu settings or other custom settings that the user has already set in the camera? I realize it might do that for features that are expanded by the new firmware, but I am hoping it does not remove or reset any of my other settings.

It's a pretty big job to go through all of them and set them back. I have copied my settings to a CF card, but I don't think it would be smart to try and copy them back to the camera after different firmware is installed.

If any of you folks who have already updated the firmware can answer this question definitively for me, I will really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!
