Changing distros, can I keep files??
Ok so here's the situation:
I'm currently running Mandrake 10.1. I am planning on switching to Ubuntu, and I'm quite sure that when I go to install it, I will be able to clear of my hard drive, but there are some files I have that I'd like to keep (and are too big to burn).
My partitions are:
/home/username/Files is where the files are.
I'd hope that I can clear of everything, so it's as though I have a fresh Ubuntu installation, and I copied those files from another computer to my /home/newusername/files directory.
Is this easy to do, or are those files going to have to go?
