That's true, too.
Infact, backup everything that you put there, or that a program put there at any time other than it's install. Back up your installers if you can, and see if you can get your anti-virus/anti-spyware definitions aswell. This will save you huge downloads once you're back up and running.

Well I deleted the old installment of WinXP and everything's running smoothly. Now I only need to figure out how to delete all the rogue programs in the Program Files folder (empty folders, programs that are obsolete). Any advice on that?
