Assuming that you created a new mailbox you didn't need to save anything.  Did you remove the old log files.

Receive connectors mainly if you have anything other than the "normal"

also, when trying to remove it, it will ask you to do some changes (i.e. if it is connected to to send connector etc...) note these so you can do them again after installing it back.

another idea is to try to reapply the latest service pack /rollup update it might save you the headache of removing the hub transport role

reapplying the SP is a safe operation if you prefer to have backups it is a valid concern
