I just copy the 2019 Mastercam.Workspace file in CONFIG and move to the 2020 and overwrite.

But beware of losing post edits, toolpath defaults, possibly other defaults as well,

and tool library fetching after the change!

I've never lost anything you mentioned using the migration wizard.  It converts tool libraries as well as operation and other defaults I've previously set.  I can't comment on post changes, because I leave all post editing to my re-seller.  That being said, my post works the same in each new version as it did in the prior.

i have seen things get lost before too but it seems rare to lose things and i dont have an idea of what causes it. The main things that i have seen get lost with migration wizard (again rarely) is things like drill cycles, misc values, basically Control definition things, but those pages and data can be re-imported in the control definition if they do get lost,=.
