vidi is obsolete, as we do not have ExtJS 4 anymore.
Media is an option but is a complete addon - like DAM and currently not 
"helping" as development has been stalled in favor for the basic levels

Great, are uploads working (files kept), I did that one and to me it 
seemed to work, too. But always hard to test.

Sad, but I think this might have been known as the upgrade wizards are 
on the topic list. If the uploads wizard worked, we just could copy and 
paste it for images - or think of having a general one which looks 
through TCA and migrates all file-fields.

I would say it should be - you may control, if there is an automaticly 
created Storage for Fileadmin on rootlevel.
If not - the upgrade wizards (at least mine) cannot work as there ist no 

As getRootlevelFolder() is a storage method, this really could be the case.

I could imagine that we need a way to ensure, that the FAL tables are 
created before the upgrade wizard is run...
