Windows 7: I think I backed everything up, lets find out!

I think I backed everything up, lets find out!

I just got a USB drive with twice the capacity of my primary drive, and am almost finished copying everything to it. So I am about to do my first Win 7 reinstall since I installed in Oct. Wish me luck, and i hope i make it back! There is no reason, just because I can, and I am hoping i am smarter than the computer... If I dont make it back all I have to say is 1011100 heheh!!
