Hullo. Next weekend I want to reformat the ol' iMac G5, I haven't done it since I got it a year or so ago and it could probably do with a spring cleaning. I got most of my files backed up, got the application disks ready to reinstall and transfered whatever licenses needed transfering ready to be started up again on the refreshed iMac. However I have been wondering how I should back up my Mail and iTunes playcounts. The iTunes library itself has been backed up but I know the playcount of each track is not imbedded into the track itself (obviousy) but done elsewhere. What files should I copy (and paste back into the new folders once the reformat is over) or how can I back it all up so my Playlists and playcounts are carried over properly? I would hate to loose a years worth. Same goes for my Mail. I have loads of emails and I don't want to loose any of them, so how can I back up all my mail so they can be reintroduced onto the new system. And for that matter how can I keep all my details and prefences so I don't have to set it all up again. That would be iceing on the cake! Also, I don't suppose anyone knows that if you have any files midway through downloading on bittorrent (I download subbed anime, nothing to be really frowned over), if I keep the incomplete files along with the torrent in a folder, back em up, copy em over to the new machine, specify the folder to download to (which would be the one with the incomplete files in) and start em again on BitTorrent (I use the original) using the torrent, will it pick up and carry on or will it ignore them and start again from scratch? If anyone can answer any of those questions (possibly all three) then you would be a life saver! Thanks in advance!
