To Rebuild or Not Rebuild

I've had an iMac now for 2 years, it's obviously been through several updates I am sat here thinking whether I should do a fresh new install.

I have a backup of everything and I am starting a brand new project on monday so it's tempting..

There is no major reason for this apart from starting with a clean slate.. As all my purchases are in the appstore it shouldn't be the nightmare it used to be with windows when i had to find 4 year old cd's

Do you ever refresh and start over?

Yes, I'm doing it as we speak on our iMac and my MBP. Both got SSD/HDD upgrades, so its a good time.

Its rewarding in a way to go back and make sure you've got things organised and how you need them.
