Backing up and restoring system configuration before/after installing Linux x+1
Could someone point me in the right direction please, I want to know how to backup my installed programmes (and their data) / settings etc when I'm ready to install the next Mint version.
I'm aware of the "Just because there's a new version, you don't HAVE to install it". I'm on 10 at the moment and have checked out 12 64bit RC and love it, so would like to go for it.
ps - Have tried searching, but can't find anything...
