asked on

what are essential settings to copy over from PC before overwriting?

other than backup of files, what would be essential items/elements to copy from the OS/browsers etc.

(one example I have in mind is passwords stored in browsers.. this may not be backed up files?) what other such info is essential to a true backup, that may not be covered by file backup alone?
