Windows 7: Carbonite Question

Carbonite Question

Hi all,

I'm planning a reinstall of Win7 with a few changes.

I want to change the location of MyDocuments. I have a local back up of everything so I wont need to restore from Carbonite.

Will I be able to reassociate carbonite with my data even though the path names will probably change? Or will I need to let Carbonite upload everything again from the new directories?

As long as your folder is set to back up with Carbonite you won't have to do a primary back up.
