    Guys,

    I know this is real easy, but I need help. I have searched so don't flame me or you can flame me, either way. :)

    I want to reload my OSX while maintaining my data. Anyone have an idea of how to do this?

    Thanks

    You mean archive the data off of the computer and then reinstall?

    I was at the Mac Store last week and the guy showed me a way to do it w/o having to backup the data. I was hoping to remember but it hasnt come back to me.

    Thanks

    No, if you insert the OSX disc, one of the reinstall options is called "archive & install", this will replace your system without removing your applications and data.
