    You can restore later and no, it will not delete the old backup

    Reinstalling can fix some problems and sometimes speed up your computer a little, but if you restore and go back to using your computer the same way you used to it will most likely run at the same performance level as before. If you need to speed up your computer let us know. That's a different problem.

    It will restore pretty much everything in you're home folder which includes music, preferences, pictures, everything, from the latest backup you have.
