[SOLVED] update from 3.3.3 to 3.5.3 -- is deleting "bfa_ata_" options safe?


I'm just accomplishing the update 3.3.3 -> 3.5.3. I'm "playing safe" within a copy of my website, so screwing anything wouldn't be bad.

3.3.5 somehow "imported" my old settings automatically (the custom CSS inserts e.g.). Did it import everything from my 3.3.3 version?

I then did some changes in the theme options and then saved these new options. Then I was reading that all options are now stored in one database field instead of many: in the "bfa_ata4" field. Fine, I thought, then I can delete the old crap, because it's not needed anymore, because aaall my settings are now within bfa_ata4 ... and I searched like this:

SELECT * FROM `wp_options` WHERE `option_name` LIKE 'bfa_ata_%'

Then I deleted them all. For the moment, it looks like everything is still working. Good. But -- of course -- now I ask myself if I perhaps have lost something. I should know this, before I make this new system live

Was deleting all these bfa_ata_* options safe?

Thank you for this hard work!
