Beta Installation Strategy

I was wondering what the best strategy is for installing the Beta. I've been installing into a new directory everytime, been using the User Home Folder, and saying that I do not have a previous version of IntelliJ IDEA. This seems to keep my settings (which I like). I've read in some other posts where people have had difficulty and had to store their settings in the actual installation folder so that it gets cleared out every install. Is it safe the way I am doing it or is there a better strategy for how to update from build to build? Thanks!
