    I'm running into the blue screen issue on my macbook and seems like I might have to reinstall Snow Leopard. However, I don't want to loose my data and I once made a partition for the macbook on an external hard drive where I backed it up some time ago. Is it possible to still back it up?

    Thanks a whole lot!!!!

    After I back up the disk to an external HD, can I then do a clean install of SL and then restore the copied disk or should i migrate it?
