Ok, gearing up for a dreaded full erase and clean install to clear up some niggling problems that I can't track down..... It's not really something I'm wanting to do, but I want to clear them before el capitan comes marching through. SO, the big question is, is there value in reinstalling software from installers vs dragging from backup? I'd be annoyed to lose custom settings in so many of them (and just the general hassle)...but if I must I must... Anyone offer thoughts on this?
