    Ok, so I know that this shouldn't be a problem, but I just wanted to make sure. My sister's Macbook is currently a mess and I want to do an archive and install on her system. She keeps absolutely everything on folders on her desktop. Will the archive and install keep all of her files even if they are in the desktop?

    Thanks

    Yes. The desktop folder is part of the users folder. Everything in the users folder is preserved in an archive and install.
