    Does anyone think there would be a problem if I had to do a System restore if I had excluded my iTunes folder from the back up?

    I shouldn't have thought so, you just wont have a backup of your iTunes. I'm guessing you manually back that up?

    I'm doing the same. iTunes is backed up to the file server, TM does everything else.

    Shouldn't be any problems. :)

    What about the system folder and system library?
    I am trying to completely erase my computer and start from scratch. I would only like to keep my user folder. Can I do this?

    ^ yes but you can only manually restore files. you cannot restore your system or use Migration Assistant.
