Just saw a message on the Ubuntu forum about MINT , and now I'm desperate to try it out.
The problem is the following...
I have 2 HDD's , 1st with XP on it , second with Ubuntu on it .
Everything works well for about 1,5 years now , but after reading about MINT , I think I should change my Ubuntu to MINT but as you can figure out , ... I don't want to loose important information like é-mails, and some other things.
I should not be worry to loose the programs and settings of Ubuntu , but some important things I can't effort to loose.
Can I install MINT next to Ubuntu on the same HDD , and looking in the future ... what is the best way to backup my data that I want to keep ?
On DVD using Ubuntu (or Mint) , ... or just copy it to the XP drive , but as far as I know , XP can't read and write Linux data.
Many questions , but I want to be sure that I do the right thing.
I like Ubuntu ( I have no experience with any other Linux version ) , but MINT seems to be more user friendly
Many thanks in advance, Kuoi ( From Belgium )
