So I want to do a fresh re-install of my Mac's OS. 10.6.5 is what I currently have on my MacBook Pro 15" (Sept. 2009). I want to do this just to make things a little faster but I don't want to lose my 1000 songs and a couple documents. How do I back these up? I don't really want to buy an external hard drive but will a USB Stick work? Just transfer all my files onto the USB stick and then insert the Snow Leopard CD to re-install the OS then once it's re-installed do I just plug in the USB stick and drag everything to where I want it? How would I go about doing what I've mentioned here above... I think I know how but I'm just asking here for reassurance. Thanks. I'd really not like to purchase anything additional besides a USB stick.
