    This might be a stupid question, but I thought I would just ask.

    I plan on wiping my hard drive clean and then upgrading to snow leopard. Once I have all my backups restored in snow leopard would it be a stupid thing to do if I reformatted my external hard drive that I use for time machine and start new time machine back ups on my external hard drive? I would only do this of course once I have my settings, and files restored to my liking of course. Once I have them set up to my liking would would be the point of keeping my old backups, right? I could just start new backups once I have what I need restored.

    Would this be a stupid thing to do?

    No it's not stupid. You could do that. But make sure ALL of the things that are backuped are brought over to the new OS and then reformat the external HD.
