Okay - Dell sent me the new boot disks, and I have an external hard drive for the back up, so I think I’m set.
Now, I’m planning on following the instructions on Dell’s site.
For my back up - I am planning to copy the Documents and Settings directory to the external drive. That should preserve all my iTunes and other documents. Will that also preserve the Outlook archives?
Is there anything else I should know? I really don’t want to fuck this up.
