The MSI installer for MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0 will keep your current DSN settings when upgrading from 8.0.30 to 8.0.33.

It will just upgrade the current version of the driver, but as said above the settings in the Data Sources remain unchanged.

If you have any concerns you can back up the DSN from the registry:
(Please be careful with the registry editor)

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\<your_DSN_NAME>

You can export the key <your_DSN_NAME> and all data source data will be stored as a .reg file.

NOTE: the passwords could be seen as plain text inside .reg file, so keep it secure.
