    Hi there,

    I'm still relatively new to the Mac experience and this would be my first OS upgrade on a Mac going from Mavericks to Yosemite.

    My concern is that I have customized a bunch of things, such as how the mouse moves, deactivated all gestures, location of the iTunes database, some settings for my photo software, drivers for my audio hardware and Logic, a few scripts that speed up workflows or replace options not native to Macs, stuff like that.

    Will this all carry over during an upgrade? Or do I have to go in and make all those tweaks again? And if stuff doesn't work how difficult is it to go back for instance via time machine and re-install everything the way it is now?

    As long as you just do an update--not a clean install--then you will be fine as far as any settings. Works the same as your iPhone or iPad--new updated OS but no changes to your data or settings--assuming of course all goes well--which is usually the case. :)
