Simple upgrading questions

Hi, I'm in the need of upgrading our copy of Traq before it becomes too out of date and difficult to upgrade in the future - currently at v3.5.2.
 
The instructions state, copy the contents of "upgrade" folder. There are some unanswered questions in regards to, what are the best practices.
 
  • Does Traq automatically create a backup of my current db?
    • If not, feature request?
  • Wouldn't it be better to completely delete all files from my Traq folder before copying in the new ones? If so, which folder(s) should be untouched?
    • This helps remove deprecated PHP files no longer being referenced.
  • And, are there any known issues with upgrading?
 
Thank you,
Damian
