Home folder migration to Mint 7 64

Postby And7ate9 » Sat Jul 04, 2009 6:38 pm

I have always found that doing a fresh format of the root and home folder drives is best for and install. But, that leave me with the trouble of migrateing my home folder files. I was wondering if I can do a straight copy and past without any worries? I think the mozilla stuff should be easy but are there any system files I should be wary of?

oh yeah is ext4 default?
Anyone got any word on grub2?

For /home, you can always try a backup program and restore to the new /home or just cp the hidden files (. dot ) which are mainly for desktop settings and application(s) link(s)

setup applications for a move
setup /home for move
