Default Re: Reinstall XP and Keep Old Files?

0. 7-zip all files you want to keep.

1. Put the archives you created on an external HD.

2. Reinstall Windows, or better yet, go the Ubuntu root and install Linux on the hard drive.

3. Once your OS of choice is installed, move all your files back, reinstall 7-zip, and decompress the archives. Done.
