    I am installing a fresh copy of OSX on my Mac.. Making sure I got everything I need.

    Here is what I have so far:

    • Desktop items
    • Movies folder
    • Music folder
    • Pictures folder
    • Documents folder
    • Safari bookmarks
    • Address book backup
    • iCal backup
    • Downloaded applications


    Anything obvious that I am missing?

    looks good. also back the /Library preferences folder and your ~/Library preferences folder. look here for more info on backing up important files.
