Windows 7: new motherboard, help!

Win 7
new motherboard, help!


My motherboard died on me. So i had it replaced with a new one. Now i have to "repair" the installed win 7.

I've done some reading and found that it is somewhat impossible to do this. (right?)

I guess it is better to backup (copy to ext. HDD) all the files on the HDD and then do a clean format/install).

But then! how do i restore the mail (outlook 2007) which is backuped to the external HDD ?????
