I am wanting to build a new computer, and I can worry about the asthetics on that later. However, I would like to know what to back up. Not just my music files, pics, movies, etc. Rather if I reformat my old system (after I have backed up all of the files I mentioned earlier) to put a different OS on it, and then I want to basically peel that OS and everything anew to the new comp, how do I go about doing this? What do I back up?
furthermore, would it just be easier to take the new OS and install it on the newly built comp, and then put all my backed up files on it?
I very much appreciate all your help,
