I am a former Acer user. On my old Acer notebook when I had to restore, it contained a partition. So all I had to do was drag and drop my important files to that little spot in the corner of the HD and everything ELSE would be erased, and my files would be safe when it was done. Do MBPs have this feature? I don't have any other way to back my data up at the moment. Does anyone else have any tips I can use for redoing the OS without loosing my important data? Thanks.
