My laptop currently is dual boot with separate Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 partitions. I'm very familiar with Ubuntu but I'm new to Mint. I plan to resize my Windows 7 partition and replace the Ubuntu 12.04 partition with a Mint 14 installation. Does the Mint 14 installer make this fairly easy? (easy as it was for Ubuntu?)
Also, I plan to do a restore of some data (music, videos, etc) I backed up using Ubuntu's default backup program. Is this program available from the Mint repositories and has anyone else tried this and been successful?
