If I update the dash daemon from the current version to the latest version, what data should I back up in the current version?

When I run the daemon with the latest version after backup, can I run the daemon after moving the backed up files to that location?

The current version is shown below.
# dash-cli getinfo
{
"version": 120301,
"protocolversion": 70210,
"walletversion": 61000,
"balance": 41.36092385,
"privatesend_balance": 0.00000000,
"blocks": 1079215,
"timeoffset": 0,
"connections": 8,
"proxy": "",
"difficulty": 236.0857267495039,
"testnet": false,
"KeyPoolOldest": 1530594967,
"keypoolsize": 2998,
"unlocked_until": 0,
"paytxfee": 0.00024500,
"relayfee": 0.00001000,
"errors": "Warning: unknown new rules activated (versionbit 3)"
}

The latest version is 0.14.0.1.

Generally you only need to keep dash.conf and wallet.dat, however if you keep the other files you can speed up blockchain sync. Since you are several versions behind, you will need to run --reindex either from the Wallet repair menu or when starting Dash 0.14.0.1.
