I'm considering upgrading to Mint 5 X64. I'm currently using Daryna. If I were to archive my /home directory, do a clean install of Mint X64, and copy back my /home directory, will all my settings, Thunderbird e-mail, and desktop files from my previous install be carried over?
I'm just wondering how much trouble this is really worth and if I'll lose a lot of files and settings. I don't want to have to set-up every single application again from scratch.
