    Hey everyone,

    due to on-going wifi issues with my iMac I am going to try starting a fresh my iMac and install a fresh copy of lion and upgrading before adding my files manually.

    The wifi issues seem to reappear when I restore so I want to manually save my files and then add them again when I get the new imac running. Im just wondering if people could advise me on stuff to save and tell me if Im missing anything?

    I mainly have:

    • Music and apps (iTunes folder)
    • Photos (Aperture)
    • Emails
    • iPhone and iPad back ups

    Im fine with saving music, apps and emails but unsure about how to save my back ups and photos. So:

    1. How to I save my entire aperture library
    2. How do I save my iphone backup to transfer to another machine?

    Cheers,

    Tom
