    I (really stupidly) erased some folders in the private folder and so messed everything up. So I reinstalled OS from disk but i did an Archive and Install to save my stuff... but, was I right to do this or are the things i messed up by deleting those folders still going to give me problems after the new install?

    Is it necessary to reinstall from disk again, this time erase and install? (after backing up music, photos etc)

    I'm clueless, any help appreciated.

    Since you had your stuff backed up, I would have done a clean install, but if everything seems to be running ok, don't worry about it.
